Jack Sullivan, son of West Ham chief David Sullivan, has mocked Tottenham on Twitter after they crashed to defeat on Wednesday night.
The north London outfit lost 2-1 against Monaco at Wembley in their first Champions League fixture for five years.
The European clash was held at the national stadium in front of a record attendance of 85,000 for an English club in the Champions League, as well as smashing Spurs’ own record crowd for a home match.
Sullivan junior, who is the Chairman of the West Ham Youth Supporters Club, took the opportunity to laugh at Spurs’ result and even added a smug emoji to his message. He said: “At least Spurs lost”.
Tottenham now face an uphill struggle to finish top of their European group which along with Monaco, also contains CSKA Moscow and Bayer Leverkusen.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side have not featured in the Champions League since 2011 under then manager Harry Redknapp.
The Whites did well five years ago though as they reached the quater final of the competition.
Tottenham have start this season well too, they have picked up eight points from their first four games in the Premier League and currently sit fifth in the table.
Pochettino’s side have already beaten Stoke and Crystal Palace as well as securing a point against both Everton and Liverpool this term.
