Social networks are becoming increasingly important in sports. Club moves are announced on Twitter with great fanfare, as well as allowing interaction with fans. However, Sometimes, as they say, some literature is downloaded by the Devil. Phil Foden was a good example of thisWhen I had to delete a file tweet A provocation by Mbappe after City and Paris Saint-Germain were ranked for the Champions League semi-finals. In his case, the culprit was, a priori, the company he hired to run his networks. In this case, the protagonist is another company, Dulux, the new sponsor of Tottenham
Tottenham announced Thursday, via Twitter, that the paint brand has become the “Official Paint Supplier”. The post showed the Dulux dog, very popular in the UK, at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium Fans threw a glove that the company’s community manager couldn’t resist picking up. “Can a dog play center defense?”One user asked, referring to the defensive weakness of Jose Mourinho’s team. “He can do a better job.”Dulux responded from his official account, with a face emoji full of laughter.
However, trolling went further. Another user said it was “Time to draw the cup tray.”Which also received a sarcastic response from Dulux. “Souvenir case for sale” The phrase that accompanied a display picture was with the spur logo on the sides. And they responded to another comment urging them to “draw a dusty display case” as follows: “Don’t be silly, surfaces cannot be painted with dust.”
This series of messages was later deleted, after it quickly became a popular topic. Tottenham declared, “they’ll let it pass.” This time when they received a public apology from the company and wanted to silence the joke: they recovered a photo of Matt Doherty deleting a tweet in which he claimed he was a fan of Arsenal, but with a Dulux dog on his face. Tottenham’s last title was in 2008 (Carling Cup) and next April 25 in the Carabao Cup Final Against Manchester City, they will have the opportunity to end this nasty streak that gave wings to the deceivers.
