Tottenham winger Georges-Kevin N’Koudou has been pictured in a Chelsea shirt and has apologised on Twitter to fans for the incident.
The 22-year-old was a fringe player during his first season with the north London club and made just 17 appearances across all competitions, failing to complete 90 minutes on a single occasion.
He has been photographed in a Chelsea jersey that is circling around social media and has explained that it is the shirt of friend Michy Batshuayi.
The pair played together in France with Marseille during the 2015-16 season and N’Koudou has been quick to apologia to Spurs fans for any unintended disrespect.
“I’m wearing the shirt my friend Michy Batshuayi gave me. NO disrespect here just old friendship sorry for not knowing,” N’Koudou wrote on his personal Twitter account.

London clubs Spurs and Chelsea have a rivalry which has really intensified during recent seasons.
The ‘Battle of the Bridge’ in the 2015/16 campaign saw an ugly contest between the two sides as the Blues ended Spurs’ hunt for the Premier League title by drawing 2-2, which handed Leicester an unlikely top-flight triumph.
The pair were in direction competition last season for the title and it was Antonio Conte’s team who ran out the winners with a seven-point cushion.
N’Koudou’s photo in a Chelsea shirt is set to enrage Spurs fans, who could believe he is showing no loyalty to his parent club.
