'Bring him back': Some Tottenham fans love what ex-Academy gem posted about Arsenal
Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to react after former Academy striker Jack Roles scored against Arsenal while playing for Crystal Palace.
What’s the story?
Well, the 22-year-old is currently on trial at Crystal Palace, after being released by Tottenham at the end of last season.
In his Premier League 2 debut for the south Londoners, Roles scored in the 4-2 defeat against Arsenal yesterday.
After full-time, the striker hopped onto Twitter to aim a dig at the Gunners.
We deserved more, but always feels good to score against A****** ⚽️ https://t.co/XOcyPvoRXy— Jack Roles (@JackRoles_) August 20, 2021
Understandably, Tottenham fans loved this from Roles.
It shows that he still holds Spurs close to his heart, despite his release from the north Londoners earlier this year.
Why didn’t Jack Roles make it at Tottenham?
In truth, we’re not quite sure why Roles didn’t make it in N17.
In our view, Tottenham gave up on Roles because of his age. At 22, he should be seeing regular senior action, rather than Academy football.
Nevertheless, he’s clearly a fan favourite judging by the reaction to his tweet.
Let’s see what the Tottenham fans on Twitter have been saying…
