Bayer Leverkusen Hilariously Troll Spurs About 7-2 Loss To Bayern Munich

Bayer Leverkusen Hilariously Troll Spurs About 7-2 Loss To Bayern Munich

It's not been a good week for Tottenham Hotspurs, embarrassed by Bayern Munich, well beaten by Brighton and mugged off on Twitter by Bayer Leverkusen.

If Spurs fans thought things couldn't get worse after seeing their side lose 7-2 to Bayern on Tuesday in the Champions League then they were sadly mistaken as Brighton dumped more pressure on Mauricio Pochettino with a 3-0 win.

With all that going on the last thing they needed was banter from Bundesliga football Twitter but that's exactly what they got. Bayer Leverkusen mocked the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium transfer by suggesting they'd had to change sports because of the loss to Bayern.

The stadium has undergone a quick change since Tuesday's game to get it ready for NFL, with two games in the next two weeks in north London.

With the football team playing in Brighton on Saturday and the international break upon us next week Spurs new stadium will play host to Oakland Raiders vs Chicago Bears on Sunday and then Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Carolina Panthers on October 13th.

It's the first year the new stadium will host games, with Wembley also hosting two games this autumn, and there's a deal for matches at the stadium for 10 years.

As part of the transformation from football stadium to American football stadium the pitch gets rolled away under the South Stand to reveal an artificial pitch for the NFL game underneath.

The pitch is an exact replica of the one used by Minnesota Vikings at the US Bank Stadium.

Other changes are more aesthetic with the Spurs livery and signs replaced by the Raiders colours with a silver pirate on a black background in their place.

The club shop at the Tottenham Hotspurs stadium won't be selling Spurs merch for the next week or so either with shirts from all NFL sides on offer instead.

Finally the two teams will use different changing rooms to the ones used by both home and away football teams that will accommodate the bigger playing squads that come with NFL.

Mauricio Pochetttino's team will be glad of the break from playing football considering the week they've had, maybe they'll get time to take in a game of American football.
