Tottenham Hotspur’s England World Cup stars have been given the strange reward of their very own reserved car parking spaces at their local Lidl stores to mark their performance in Russia.
While Kieran Trippier has already been awarded the freedom of Bury, he can now park whenever he wants at his hometown of the branch of the supermarket, with similar spots also reserved for Harry Kane, Danny Rose, Dele Alli and Eric Dier.
It’s a clever marketing ploy from the German chain who are looking to capitalise on the ‘feel good’ surrounding the national team at this time and follows in the footsteps of Transport for London’s decision to temporarily re-name Southgate tube station to ‘Gareth Southgate’ in honour of the England manager who exceeded expectations by guiding his side to the semi-final of the tournament.
