A Chelsea fan called up the Tottenham club shop pretending to not know if Spurs could still win the league – and he got the answers he wanted.
Rick Spiking posted a video to Twitter earlier this morning which showed him phoning the north London club’s shop to ask them if he could get the champions put on next season’s kit.
Whoever answered the phone obviously isn’t staying up to date on her football as she said a load of those kits had been ordered – but they’d been given no information on when they’d be released.
When the fan asked her if Spurs could still win the league, the unfortunate worker responded saying “hopefully”.
And he couldn’t resist putting her straight before hanging up and laughing:

Obviously, Chelsea are now Premier League champions after their 1-0 win over West Brom on Friday night was enough to put them out of sight at the top of the table.
Tottenham are their closest challengers and up until their visit to West Ham two weeks ago they looked like they could claw back the gap to the league leaders.
But they lost to the Hammers, handing Chelsea a boost that they built on with big recent wins over Everton, Middlesbrough and West Brom.
