Tottenham Hotspur: Spurs fans react to Callum Wilson quotes

Image for Tottenham Hotspur: Spurs fans react to Callum Wilson quotes

Spurs fans on Twitter have been reacting to some post-match quotes from Newcastle United striker Callum Wilson following the 1-1 draw against the Toon on Sunday. 

The former Bournemouth man rescued a late draw for Steve Bruce’s side after scoring a penalty, which was awarded following a controversial handball decision (per BBC).

Despite it being Newcastle’s only shot on target in a game which the Lilywhites completely dominated, the 28-year-old was certainly not sympathetic when asked about the handball rule in his interview following the game.

How well can you remember the last week of Spurs action? 1. Who scored Spurs' first goal in the win against KF Shkendija?

He said, as per Football Daily, via Last Word on Spurs:

“It is absolutely marvellous for me, it’s got me on the scoresheet today. Long may it continue to be honest.”

The handball rule has come under a lot of criticism in recent weeks, with Steve Bruce suggesting that the rule is “nonsense” in his post-match interview, so you can perhaps understand why some Spurs fans are annoyed by Wilson’s comments.

Spurs fans continued to criticise Wilson in their replies to the tweet.

Overall, it seems clear that the majority of Spurs fans were less than happy with Wilson’s comments, with one fan suggesting that they are glad Spurs didn’t sign him, with the Lilywhites having been linked with a move for the forward before he joined the Toon.
