Tottenham Hotspur overcame Brentford 2-0 in their Carabao Cup semi-final on Tuesday to book their place at Wembley in April.
It will be Tottenham’s first Wembley final since 2015 when Spurs were beaten by a Chelsea side who were managed by none other than Jose Mourinho at the time.
On making it back to Wembley, Spurs’ official social media account joked about the viral Whatsapp spoof that a massive lasagne was being cooked at the stadium.
Billy McLean, a 29-year-old Londoner, created a fake audio clip on Whatsapp, claiming that the Ministry of Defence was about to requisition Wembley Stadium to cook the world’s biggest lasagne (The Guardian).
He claimed in the audio clip that pieces of the lasagne would then be fed to hungry people who are stuck indoors during the lockdown.
As absurd as the idea sounds, some people started to believe it and the audio message went viral before the FA finally confirmed that they had no such plans for Wembley stadium.
Tottenham posted the following message on social media after sealing their place in the Carabao Cup final.

While this is quite witty from the Spurs admin, he/she should know that Tottenham fans have been scarred for life by the lasagna-gate incident and so any reference to the dish does not bring back particularly good memories.
