Fans’ Twitter backlash as Gazidiz goads joke club Tottenham

Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis faced a bitter backlash last night after ridiculing Tottenham at the Gunners AGM.
Irate Spurs fans took to Twitter to vent their spleen after Gazidis joked about the White Hart Lane outfit.
Quizzed at a shareholders’ question over the promotion of NBC’s Premier League coverage in America, Gazidis goaded the N17 club for the £80million sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid.
Gazidis, a former deputy commissioner of the Major Soccer League, said: “It is a tremendous development for the Premier League that NBC is involved as heavily as it is and promoting the Premier League in the way that it is.
“It is also true that there are Gareth Bale posters plastered all over Times Square –unfortunately he doesn’t play for Tottenham Hotspur any more, he now plays for one of our rivals.”
Tottenham fans pointed out that Arsenal finished above their club by a just one point in the race for fourth place in the Premier League last season.
Although, crucially, this was enough to see Arsene Wenger’s side to qualify for the group stages of the Champions League again.
Gazidis was accused of having “delusions of grandeur” and was labelled a “moron”.
Other terms of abuse were unfit to publish.
