Assou-Ekotto reacts on Twitter to Aaron Lennon goal, angry Spurs fans respond

Assou Ekotto

The former Tottenham man joked when the Everton winger scored against his old club.

Benoit Assou-Ekotto took to Twitter to joke around with Tottenham Hotspur fans on Sunday afternoon - but many weren't amused!

Indeed, the former Tottenham left-back, who left after spending many months in the wilderness at White Hart Lane, poked fun at seeing a 'good story' on his TV when Aaron Lennon scored for Everton against the north London side.

Dele Alli later equalised but Assou-Ekotto's joke had already been seen by many as his former club played the Toffees on Sky Sports. 

As the goal went in, Assou-Ekotto tweeted 'good story on my TV... LOL.' He later deleted it but posted another follow-up while Tottenham were still losing.

After his former club equalised, the 31-year-old teased fans with the following post:

Naturally, Spurs fans weren't too pleased with the defender's Twitter antics. It was ironic that Lennon's goal prompted his tweet - and probably deliberate - as both were freezed out at Tottenham.

Assou-Ekotto's situation, though, always seemed far more controversial in the eyes of fans.

Here's how some of the Tottenham supporters responded to their former defender on Twitter:

It's safe to say they weren't best pleased!
