Domino's Pizza mocked Tottenham on social media for their Europa Conference League exit leaving fans deeply unhappy and enraged at the pizza chain.
Spurs were knocked out of the competition earlier this week after forfeiting their match against Rennes due to a coronavirus outbreak in their camp. The north London club needed to win the game to progress to the next round, but were instead handed a 3-0 loss by UEFA after the match on December 9 was postponed.
Rivals fans wasted no time in mocking the club for their humiliating exit, and Domino's joined in with some banter of their own. The pizza chain's UK Twitter account posted a picture of a man pointing at an empty cabinet with the caption: "Spurs fans acting like they never wanted the Europa Conference League in their trophy cabinet…”
However, the light-hearted jab did not go down well with Spurs fans who reacted angrily to the post, with some claiming that they will never buy pizza from Domino's again.
Following the club's exit, manager Antonio Conte called the decision 'unfair' and claimed that the club could protest the decision.
"For sure this is an incredible decision," the Italian said in his press conference ahead of Wednesday's Carabao Cup quarter final with West Ham United.
"This decision is not fair. Because all the world know that we are facing a big problem like Covid. "We didn't play because we had many players with Covid and the government decided to stop our training session, to stop our training centre and honestly, for me, for the players, for the club, for our fans, it's incredible the decision that UEFA wanted to take.
“It's unfair, for sure. We deserved to play the qualification on the pitch. Not in this way. "I'm very disappointed for the UEFA decision and I don't understand. I hope that in the future, in the next step, something can change.
"We deserved to play. It's not our fault. UEFA have taken this decision but there is another step to confirm or not this incredible decision.”
