Tottenham Supporter Phones In Sick To Hide Away From Arsenal Fans At Work
Just moments after seeing his team get battered 7-2 at the hands of Bayern Munich one Spurs fan called into talkSPORT to confirm he'd already called in sick to work on Wednesday.
Mauricio Pochettino's side were well beaten at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as Bayern, and specifically Serge Gnabry, ran wild in north London.
One fan was left so sick watching the game he's already called in sick for work on Wednesday and left the work Whatsapp group, because of the eight Arsenal fans, as he explained on talkSPORT.

Maybe Darren the Spurs fan has got it all wrong though, surely his colleagues will all be extremely empathetic towards him tomorrow, after all there's no better group of fans to understand being hammered by Bayern than those from the red half of north London.
The Gunners lost 5-1 three times in a row to the Bundesliga side in the Champions League in 2015 and 2017, with two of the results combining for a 10-2 hammering on aggregate.
However on Tuesday night it was the white half of north London's turn to feel the wrath of the German champions in European competition.
The English side took the lead through Son Heung-min after 12 minutes and, though Bayern looked good with the ball, were worth their lead.
It didn't last long though as Joshua Kimmich equalised with a brilliant strike just three minutes later. Robert Lewandowski made it a very different picture as he made it 2-1 on the stroke of half time with an excellent turn and lovely low finish.
The second half became embarrassing for the Premier League team though as Gnabry ran wild with four goals and Lewandowski got a second.
Harry Kane had made it 4-2 from the penalty spot just after the hour mark but Pochettino's side were well beaten.
It's no wonder Darren feels sick.
