Tottenham fans have reacted angrily on Twitter after Domino’s Pizza mocked their Europa Conference League exit.
Spurs were knocked out of the competition on Monday after forfeiting their final group match against Rennes.
UEFA awarded the French club a 3-0 win after the match on December 9 was postponed due to a coronavirus outbreak in the Tottenham camp.
Spurs needed to win the game to have a chance of reaching the knockout stage of the competition, following embarrassing group stage defeats to Vitesse and Mura.

Rival fans wasted no time in mocking Tottenham for being eliminated from the competition – and Domino’s have now twisted the knife.
On Tuesday, the pizza chain’s UK Twitter account posted a picture of a man pointing at an empty cabinet, along with the caption: “Spurs fans acting like they never wanted the Europa Conference League in their trophy cabinet…”
Tottenham fans have reacted angrily to the post with some vowing to never buy a pizza from Domino’s again.
“Awful pizza, just lost a lot of customers great marketing,” wrote one fan on Twitter.
Great business I must say 👍 ……… remind me where you learnt your business sense?…………so I can avoid going there 👎👎👎— Micky Hazard (@1MickyHazard) December 20, 2021
“Great business I must say… remind me where you learnt your business sense so I can avoid going there,” added another.
“You know there are a LOT of Tottenham fans who will now actively avoid your brand,” added a third fan.
“Why publicly take the p*** out of us? What's the business case for this?”
Tottenham are reportedly seeking legal advice over UEFA’s decision to award Rennes victory.
Meanwhile, Spurs defender Davinson Sanchez has hit out at European football's governing body for imposing a forfeit, calling it "completely unfair".
"Having a right to play, it's not fair on us [for UEFA] to say, 'OK you're out of the competition', knowing that we didn't play the game because of the Covid cases," he told Sky Sports.
"We prepared for the game, we were focussed, we were doing everything to play at our ground.
"The night before we got the news the game was not going to happen. I think it's unfair for us as a club and our fans.
"We struggled playing away from home but we still had a chance to win the competition, so it's completely unfair."
