Jose Mourinho was left confused after being asked questions about Tottenham's new paint sponsor Dulux. Spurs announced on Thursday morning that Dulux would be their first ever official paint supplier, but the brand took to social media to mock the club, in a series of now-deleted tweets.

Spurs' official Twitter account wrote: "We are delighted to announce Dulux, the nation's number one paint brand, as our first ever Official Paint Supplier," alongside a picture of an Old English Sheepdog - the company's logo - inside the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

And a fan cheekily replied: "Can the dog play center-back?" hinting at the club's defensive issues. Dulux tweeted back: "He might do a better job."

Another fan responded saying "Time to paint that trophy cabinet", to which the sponsor's official account replied "For sale, unused trophy cabinet". They also attacked a mocked-up picture of an empty trophy cabinet accompanied with the Spurs badge.

The exchanges saw Dulux briefly trending as number one on Twitter before the tweets were later deleted.

Mourinho was asked about the new sponsorship during a press conference on Thursday, to which he replied: "What's that?". "Dulux," continued the intrepid reporter. "Their logo is an old English sheepdog... they were unveiled today as a new paint sponsor. Just wondered whether you'd seen it and what you thought of it."
