Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Paulinho for Barcelona against Real Madrid on Saturday afternoon.
Paulinho featured for Barcelona in their La Liga game against Madrid away from home at the Santiago Bernabeu.
The 29-year-old midfielder started El Clasico and played for 84 minutes, as Barcelona hammered Madrid 3-0.
The Brazil international joined Tottenham from Corinthians in the summer of 2013 for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be just under £17 million.
Much was expected of the midfielder when he arrived at White Hart Lane, but the Brazilian failed to make an impact.
Paulinho left Spurs for Chinese side Guangzhou Evergrande in the summer of 2015 for a transfer fee reported by The Independent to be worth £9.8 million.
Barcelona signed the Brazilian in the summer of 2017, and the midfielder has established himself as an important player in the Spanish giants’ team.
