Tottenham’s Andros Townsend is giving up defending duties because a fortune cookie told him so [Picture]

Tottenham winger Andros Townsend is now taking tactical advise not from Andre Villas-Boas but a fortune cookie.

The 22-year-old Spurs forward, who has been one of the revelations of the season at both White Hart Lane and for England, posted a comedy message on Twitter on Tuesday night after receiving advise from a fortune cookie.

Townsend’s message read:

This is what came out my fortune cookie…. Looks like I don’t have to track back and defend anymore guys! Haha

Cue a slew of Spurs fans only too happy to tell their #17 that he never tracked back anyways.
