Tottenham Hotspur winger Georges-Kevin N’Koudou has caused some controversy after a picture emerged online of him wearing a Chelsea shirt.
The 22-year-old has not yet established himself as a first-team regular in Mauricio Pochettino’s team as he is yet to complete a full 90 minutes.
Last season, the Frenchman, who joined the North London outfit from Marseille last year, featured 17 times in all competitions
His football was not the talking point on Wednesday, though, as an image of himself donning a Chelsea shirt while posing with a fan circulated on social media.

This was sure to anger Spurs fans, who are not huge favourites of their London rivals, particularly after they missed out on winning the Premier League title last season and had to watch Chelsea lift the crown.
N’Koudou noticed the picture on Twitter and explained that the shirt was given to him by his former Marseille teammate Michy Batshuayi, who now plies his trade at Chelsea.
Lol @ clickbait … I'm wearing the shirt my friend @mbatshuayi gave me… NO disrespect here just old friendship sorry for not knowing ?
