Charlie Adam responds to Tottenham hate accusations

Stoke City midfielder speaks out on social media over angry Tweets asking whether he has anything against Tottenham Hotspur.

The news that Paulinho will be out of action for at least four weeks after sustaining ligament damage following an over-the-ball tackle attempt from Stoke City midfielder Charlie Adam, Tottenham Hotspur fans were reminded of when Gareth Bale succumbed to injury after a robust challenge from the same player.

Former Spurs chairman and prominent Tottenham social media commentator Lord Sugar issued a couple of messages:

And, while the player will not be sanctioned from the FA, according to The Guardian, he has issued an official response.

The injurious challenge was put forth to a disciplinary panel but neither the three-man FA panel nor the referee at the time - Kevin Friend - deemed the tackle to be worthy of retrospective action or a red card.
