Georges-Kevin N’Koudou’s Tottenham career never really got going last season after an £11m move from Marseille.
The 22-year-old French U21 international made just eight appearances in the Premier League, all of them as a substitute, and is still awaiting his first goal for the North Londoners.
Well, following his latest activity on social media he may be waiting a while for that goal…in fact, he may not get a chance at it again!
There he is, pictured wearing a training shirt from Spurs’ arch nemesis, Chelsea. Fans of Mauricio Pochettino’s side saw the image on Twitter and were not happy with the bit-part player.
Hi @SpursOfficial please announce the termination of Georges Kevin Nkoudou’s contract.

Clearly, they’re not happy, but N’Koudou himself actually replied to the tweet of him in a Chelsea shirt and came up with an excuse for his actions.
Lol @ clickbait … I’m wearing the shirt my friend @mbatshuayi gave me… NO disrespect here just old friendship sorry for not knowing

Then, Michy Batshuayi got involved himself and defended his former colleague at Marseille.
❤❤❤ mon frero laisse

Spurs fans then reacted with slightly mixed opinion, with some taking a forgiving stance while many simply labelled the act as stupid.
Thanks for actually coming out and talking about it, sorry for abuse others gave you. Ain’t fair until they’ve heard your side

I forgive you. Now get @mbatshuayi in a Tottenham shirt. Friendship should overcome rivalry.

Understand what you did was completely wrong. The moment we start accepting things like this is the day footballs dead. Go sit in the corner

Friendship or not. You must know this was a bad move

“Sorry for not knowing ” the absolute cheek of it what a shame.

Well, the fans have spoken, now we wait and see if any of his Spurs teammates have anything to say.
