Oops! This one is up for some debate. We have seen players make the switch between rivals and don the rivals’ jerseys. Well, though it is totally unethical, it can be forgiven considering professional reasons. But wearing a rival jersey when playing for your current club? That’s something that needs to be looked into.
A photo of Georges-Kevin N’Koudou wearing a Chelsea training shirt has split opinions among the Spurs fan community with some wanting him to leave and others believing the reaction has been over the top.
One Tottenham supporter even claimed that he had seen Spurs legends Paul Gascoigne and Glenn Hoddle in Arsenal tops before and that it was not a big deal.
The photo emerged on Monday night of the 22-year-old French winger wearing a Chelsea training shirt. The photo would have had to be taken in the last 12 months as Carabao only became the sponsors of the Blues’ training tops last season.
However, N’Koudou explained that it was given to him by his friend Michy Batshuayi and hence he was wearing it.
The fans took Twitter to react to the picture and we put together a few interesting reactions. Read on!
This was the picture!

Here’s what N’Koudou had to say.

And the fans’ response to the picture!
Georges-Kevin Nkoudou you are a very stupid person! People argue that footballers are thick and you’ve just fuelled it! https://t.co/qUAnOGLJIA

Stupidity is not a crime however after a poor first season where people question ability & attitude this does not help for me.

Nkoudou and Batshuayi are bromance levels of closeness. People need to chill. I’ve seen Gazza and Hoddle in Arsenal shirts. Calm yourselves.

That probably shows he’s not serious enough about his commitment to Spurs. Won’t be surprised if he’s the first to be shipped out

Difference between Kane and nkoudou is obvious. One was an 11 year old who knew no better. Now he despises them. #ShirtGate

I forgive you. Now get @mbatshuayi in a Tottenham shirt. Friendship should overcome rivalry.
