Piers Morgan mocked Tottenham on Twitter as he compared their Champions League exit to Britain’s exit from the European Union.

The well known Arsenal fan and social media user linked the two events together in the wake of Spurs crashing out of Europe on Tuesday night.

The opinionated celebrity and TV presenter posted on his personal Twitter account that Prime Minister Theresa May has asked Mauricio Pochettino to lead Brexit negotiations.

Tottenham will have been severely disappointed with their exit from the Champions League group stage on Tuesday evening and Arsenal fans have taken great delight from the demise of their rivals.

Spurs qualified for the elite competition for the first time in five years after their third place finish last season.

However, the group stage has yielded just one win, one draw and three losses from their five fixtures and they cannot now finish higher than third place.

They will host CSKA Moscow at Wembley in December and the Russian outfit are currently propping up the group with three points.

Spurs will know that a win or a draw will be enough to see them through to the knockout stages of the Europa League.

Pochettino may now turn his attentions to the league campaign with Tottenham in fifth place and one point behind Arsenal in fourth.
