It may well be the off-season but the “banter” between Spurs and Arsenal continues in north London as well as on Twitter.
Although he may not be coming off his best season, Benoit Assou Ekotto is something of a cult hero at Tottenham with his no nonsense attitude and down to earth nature.
The Cameroon full back is likely to have gone even higher in Spurs fans estimations over the last few hours as a reply on Twitter from BAE to an Arsenal fan has begun to go viral.
The Arsenal fan, Daniel Stevenson, Tweeted: “your started at the bottom…and your still are #arsenal4ever #buyahairbrush #yourshit”
To which Essou-Akotto replied, a day later, with a picture of Robin van Persie, Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas, holding the trophies they won after leaving Arsenal.
