Spurs fans slam Pienaar tweet

2012-05-22 09:04

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.

    What was he supposed to say? Did they expect him to curse Bayarn for losing? Just how moronic are the Pom football fans if a player isn't even allowed to congratulate another team over a result he had absolutely no power in changing.

    Spurs had their destiny in their own hands and could have saved themselves the disappointment by ending better than fourth in the Premiership, but their results at the business end of the season were disappointing. They should look at themselves rather than spending their energy on non-footballing nonsense.

    English culture is based on idiotic schadenfreude. If you dont join them in their misery there is a backlash.
