Former Chelsea captain John Terry could not resist the impulse to have a dig at Tottenham Hotspur while recording a happy birthday message for a friend on social media.
It is safe to say that there is no love lost between Spurs fans and Terry, who has been part of numerous great battles with the Lilwhites during his years at Chelsea.

As relayed by The Mirror, the Aston Villa coach sent his birthday wishes to a Tottenham supporting friend and proceeded to mock his pal about the North Londoners’ recent trophy drought.
In the video, the defender said: “Mark, hello mate. It’s JT. Happy birthday.
“A big thanks mate for everything you do for me, personally and professionally. Top fella.
“Probably the only downside to it is that you’re Spurs, which is unfortunate for you actually.
“But thinking of what could I get you, it was difficult for me to think.”
Tottenham’s title chase was famously bought to an end by Chelsea during the 2015-16 season, with the Blues holding Mauricio Pochettino’s side to a 2-2 draw in a game that came to be dubbed as the ‘Battle of the Bridge’.
That draw at Stamford Bridge saw Leicester City being crowned champions and Terry certainly did not miss the opportunity to remind his friend of that result.
Terry added in the video: “See the one at the top [Premier League trophy]? You nearly won that and we stopped you at the Bridge that year.
“Do you remember that mate? When we stopped Spurs at Stamford Bridge and should have had about seven men sent off?
“I mean the bottom one [Champions League trophy], let’s not even go there mate but yeah that Premier League one must hurt mate.”
Spurs Web Opinion
I actually find it funny how much Chelsea fans and former Chelsea players obsess about stopping Tottenham from winning the title that season.
The reality is that the draw against West Brom in the previous game was what cost us the league. The title race was all but over before that game at Stamford Bridge.
