Tottenham dud Chiriches spotted on Instagram moments after being hauled off by Sherwood

Vlad Chiriches

Vlad Chiriches has done himself no favours with his actions this afternoon.

Tottenham Hotspur had a horrid start to their game against West Bromwich Albion this afternoon - going 2-0 down in four minutes and before long it was three.

With that in mind changes had to be made at half-time - even though Jonas Olsson gave them a life-line on the stroke of half-time.

And the player who had possibly the worst half out of any of the Spurs players was Romanian defender Vlad Chiriches.

He has shown flashes of quality during his injury stricken first season at White Hart Lane - but overall it has been a very disappointing campaign from Mr Casual at the back.

Today was one of his worst performances for the club - so there was no wonder he was hauled off at half-time.

But what was not expected was that he would be on his phone almost immediately.

Eagle-eyed Instagram users noticed he liked a picture of team-mate Kyle Walker’s just moments after being substituted.

Now phones have, as we know, been used recently from the substitute bench at The Lane. Wojciech Szczesny pulled his out and had a selfie-thon all over the ground.

We imagine Tim Sherwood is going to be slightly more peeved about this one…
