'Fake news', 'Never making it' - Tottenham fans mock club after latest announcement
By Russell Edge
Tottenham fans were feeling particularly cheeky on social media as they poked fun at the club after the announcement that Anthony Georgiou had signed a new contract with the club.
Spurs revealed the news on Thursday via both their official Twitter account as well as the official club website, with the young winger committing to a deal which is set to keep him at the club until 2020.

The 20-year-old is one of several bright stars at the club, and made his debut for the senior side earlier this season, appearing off the substitute’s bench during the 3-0 win over Apoel Nicosia in the Champions League.
While there was much delight from fans on Twitter over the club securing his future, many were concerned with the absence of a photo which shows the player with manager Mauricio Pochettino putting an arm around him while signing the deal, something which has become somewhat of a iconic pose at Spurs.
Here, Football Insider has rounded up a selection of the supporters’ best tweets:
