Dinamo Zagreb player posts on Twitter as Croatian side beat Tottenham Hotspur

Dinamo Zagreb youngster Robbie Burton has posted on Twitter after the former Arsenal academy player watched from the substitutes bench as his side knocked Tottenham out of the Europa League – posting, cheekily: “London is red”.

Burton, 21, joined Zagreb from Arsenal last summer having clocked up 31 appearances for the Gunners’ Under-23 side and even appearing on the bench for the senior side. The Wales Under-19 ace has since played 14 times for Zagreb.

He remained an unused substitute as Spurs surrendered a 2-0 first-leg lead. The brace from Kane last week was wiped out by Zagreb, as Mislav Orsic scored a wonderful hat-trick – taking Zagreb into extra-time and then securing the win.

Spurs missed numerous chances throughout the clash, most notably when 3-0 down. Carlos Vinicius had to react quickly with the goal gaping and while he failed to do so – the ball bobbled to Kane who saw his effort superbly stopped on the line.

It is a dismal defeat for Spurs, who were hoping that given Jose Mourinho’s past in Europe – including a recent Europa League triumph with Man United – could take them to similar glory and end their hunt for a trophy. The focus goes to the league.

 

The Carabao Cup is also approaching. But Burton posted a cheeky message on Twitter after the loss to his Zagreb side, claiming that both London is red, and Zagreb is blue.
