Wimmer posts Twitter message to Tottenham fans after own goal against Arsenal

By Amir Mir

Kevin Wimmer has thanked Tottenham supporters on Twitter after he converted into his own net during the 1-1 draw against Arsenal at the Emirates on Sunday.

The 23-year-old centre-back headed in a Mesut Ozil cross which looped over his keeper Hugo Lloris to give the Gunners a first-half lead.

But striker Harry Kane, who was returning from from injury, equalised via the penalty-spot in the second-half when Laurent Koscielny fouled Moussa Dembele.

Wimmer, who was starting his first Premier League game this season in the absence of the injured Toby Alderweireld, had this message for supporters on his personal Twitter account.

Austrian international Wimmer has played three EFL Cup and Premier games this term where he has picked up two yellow cards, including in the opening ten minutes against Arsenal.
