'The most Spurs thing I've ever seen' - Tottenham fans stunned by ex-player's red hot form

By Russell Edge

Tottenham fans have been left stunned on social media after former player Paulinho scored his second goal in as many games for Barcelona.

The Brazilian midfielder, who spent two years in North London before moving to Chinese side Guangzhou Evergrande in 2015, netted against SD Eibar in a 6-1 victory on Tuesday in his first start for the Catalan giants.

The strike follows the goal he scored after coming on as a substitute against Getafe on Saturday, leaving him with two goals in four league appearances.

The 29-year-old’s red hot form has left Tottenham fans bemused, as he struggled to demonstrate the form expected, and was named the club’s worst ever player in a feature by football magazine Four Four Two.

Many Spurs fans took to Twitter to voice their disbelief at what they were seeing.
