Some opposing football fans have taken to social media to poke fun at Tottenham Hotspur following the launch of their new home and away playing kits ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.
It was revealed that the kits which have been designed by Nike a part of long-term partnership between the US sportswear giant and the Champions League finalists have been made with 100 per cent recycled polyester fabric, which is made from recycled plastic bottles (Spurs official).
Fans from rival clubs have labelled Tottenham in the past as ‘bottlers’ over their failure to win the Premier League title in 2015-16 when they were pipped to the crown by Leicester City and eventually ended up finishing in third place in the table (Goal).
With Spurs having failed to win a competitive trophy since beating Chelsea in the 2008 League Cup final, the label has frequently been used.
Here is how some football supporters reacted after learning about Tottenham’s environmentally friendly initiative.
Can’t lose their bottle if they are made out of them…. pic.twitter.com/klwl4zvR7l
