Video: Spurs fans burst into song in front of former player


Tottenham Hotspur fans decided to burst into song on the Metropolitan Line train in front of Mido.

The former Spurs striker was in London to watch Mauricio Pochettino’s side take on Chelsea at Wembley and was the subject of attention of the fans following the 3-1 victory.

Mido originally joined Tottenham on an 18-month loan deal from Italian outfit Roma in January 2005 and instantly became a hit after scoring a brace of goals on his debut against Portsmouth at White Hart Lane and went on to score 11 goals in 27 games, ending the campaign as the club’s second highest goalscorer.

The Egyptian finally signed for the club on a permanent basis the following summer for £3.4million (Guardian) but fell foul of manager Martin Jol for comments he made about Sol Campbell.

Mido had called Campbell ‘one of the easiest defenders I have played against’, but his comments drew an angry response from Jol.

“I have spoken to Mido and he is well aware that this is not the kind of comment you make about a fellow player,” Jol told Sky Sports.

“Given the feelings that still run high about Sol among our supporters, Mido’s comments were not only disrespectful, they were also irresponsible.

“I have told him to let his football do the talking in the future.”
