London - Tottenham duo Louis Saha and Steven Pienaar were caught up in a Twitter storm on Sunday after congratulating Chelsea on their dramatic Champions League win, according to the dailymail website.

The win meant that Spurs - who finished fourth in the Premier League - will not play in next season's competition.

But despite having to make do with Europa League football again next season, French striker Saha and Bafana Bafana midfielder Pienaar praised their London rivals.

'Well done Chelsea,' Pienaar, who spent the second half of last season on loan at Everton, tweeted.

Saha posted: 'Bravo Drogba. Bravo Chelsea. Bravo Champion League. Bravo Football. Just magic stuff.

"No CL for Tottenham but FairPlay to Chelsea. Great victory great final for them".

The tweets quickly drew a backlash from furious Spurs fans, who responded in their droves with anger.
