Tottenham sign an Arsenal fan and make him delete his tweets

The Internet never forgets and since the new Tottenham signing Matt Doherty often tweeted about his support for Arsenal, Spurs got right on damage control.

Spurs social media team went the smart route and started the joking first. Making Doherty delete his tweets in the unveiling video.

Tottenham's third signing, after Pierre Emile Hojbjerg and Joe Hart, arrives for around €17,000,000 to be a backup option at right-back. If he performs on the fraction of the level another former Arsenal fan at the club - Harry Kane, Doherty will look like a steal.

Long-time Wolves player signed a contract until 2024 after playing in over 300 games wearing the orange shirt. Once again, as Hojbjerg and Hart did, the 28-year-old too singled out the stadium as a big reason to join the London team.

"I’m very proud to be joining such a big club. With the size of the club, the training ground, the fact that we’ve got the best stadium in the world and possibly the best training ground in the world from what I’ve seen – and the manager… once I knew there was interest it was a no-brainer for me to get myself down to London," said Doherty while noting this is a step upwards for him, not sideways.

A dynamo, Doherty played 50 games in all competitions for Wanderers last season as they fought with Spurs for the European qualifying spots in the league, while reaching the quarter-finals of the Europa League.

Jose Mourinho is double happy with this move as it makes his games against Wolves easier.

"I hate to play against him, so I'm so, so happy that I don't play against him again. I'm so happy that we have him. An incredible career at Wolves...League One, Championship, Premier League and Europa League. He did everything for them, so job done there," said Mourinho.

Besides representing Wolverhampton, he only played for Hibernian and Bury on short-term loans. Battling for his place with only Serge Aurier, it's safe to say the Irishman will have a big role in the team.

Doherty will have a chance to understand the club a bit better as today Amazon releases the documentary of Spurs' last season called All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur.
