Llorente’s tweet backfires ahead of Tottenham Hotspur’s weekend clash

In the days leading up to the weekend’s domestic action, plenty of footballers tend to post training pictures on Twitter or messages expressing their excitement for the next game.

Fernando Llorente was one of those players, as he took to social media ahead of Tottenham Hotspur’s Premier League match away to Huddersfield Town.

The striker’s simple tweet has not quite attracted the kind of response he may have hoped for.

While some Tottenham fans shared his excitement about Saturday’s early kickoff, rival supporters mocked Llorente’s failure to land a regular spot in the team.

The Spaniard joined the North London outfit from Swansea City on transfer deadline-day, but has only started one fixture, which was in the Carabao Cup.

In total, the striker has made five appearances in all competitions, but across the Premier League and Champions League, the former Juventus star has played just 53 minutes.

The ex-Sevilla man was always going to be down the pecking order at Spurs due to Harry Kane cementing the role as first-choice striker.

Judging from his tweet, Llorente is excited for the upcoming game, but rival fans have pointed out that he is unlikely to play.

Others were much more supportive…
