Tottenham and Arsenal is a rivalry that goes back longer than any current supporter could remember.
The animosity between the two clubs is very, real. As near neighbours, Spurs and the Gunners have been battling for north London supremacy for decades. As such, the supporters of the two clubs don’t get along, to say the least.
Most football fans are aware of that fact. However, one ‘fan’ in Australia – whom you can see in the video above – has clearly never even heard of the north London derby.
Either that, or he is the bravest/daftest football supporter we’ve seen in a while. Why? Because he thought it would be a REALLY good idea to turn up to Arsenal’s friendly against Western Sydney Wanderers FC… wearing a TOTTENHAM shirt.
Standing outside the ground ahead of the match, the mystery fan is filmed being slowly surrounded by a horde of bemused, irritated Gooners.
To no-one’s great surprise, the guy in the Spurs shirt get more and more abuse, until a police officer steps in and escorts him away – much to the Arsenal fans’ delight.
So, why did this chap decide to turn up at Arsenal game in a Spurs top?
Is a massive Tottenham fan who wanted to wind up his club’s traditional rivals? Had he lost a bet with a mate and been given this unpleasant task as a forfeit? Is he actually someone who knows nothing about football, who has been pranked by his friends in a particularly cruel fashion?
One thing’s for sure: he probably won’t be doing this again…
