Just when Arsenal’s woes could not get much worse, even a Hollywood star has decided to switch allegiance to Tottenham Hotspur.
Zac Efron was spotted at the new Spurs stadium on Tuesday night as he watched on as Mauricio Pochettino’s side narrowly beat Brighton 1-0 courtesy of a late Christian Eriksen goal.
The Greatest Showman actor has previously been spotted wearing the shirt of their north London rivals Arsenal when he went to see them play against Chelsea in 2012.
Efron is currently in London to promote his new film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil And Vile, in which he plays serial killer Ted Bundy.
The 31-year-old was invited to watch the Spurs match by Dele Alli and was spotted wearing the famous lilywhite shirt, along with having photographs with some of the first team.
He also admitted that he hopes that Spurs will win the Champions League whilst also declaring his love for the club.
Efron told PA as quoted by the Standard:
“I love football, primarily because it’s one of my favourite sports, but it’s newer to me than a lot of British people.
“Right now, I love Spurs.
“I got to meet Dele Alli yesterday and I got to meet his family and be in the box with some of the best football players of all time.
“It was a dream come true – if I passed that up? I don’t know how you would call me a smart American or Brit.”
When asked if Spurs can bring home the Champions League crown, he added: “I hope so – they’re banged up.
“I love the game. Let’s go, more football.”
