Fornals incident goes viral

Suggestions that Spurs defender Cristian Romero spat at Pablo Fornals have been denied this morning as an Internet hoax.

A photo emerged on social media yesterday which appeared to be  a screen grab of live TV coverage showing the North London defender spitting at the West Ham midfielder as he lay on the floor but it has been declared as a fake as TV video replays do match the screen grab.

According to Sky Sports  Romero ordered Fornals to get up after he floored him with a tackle. The West Ham player didn’t take to that very well and leaped up before lots of players from both sides piled in to altercation only to be separated.  

Romero was shown the yellow card by referee Paul Tierney.

  1. Top players don’t need to behave like that and can hold their hands up and walk away when they have committed a needless foul. Romero showed his frustration by attempting to muddy the waters with his actions. He’s simply a spud clown.

  2. Not too sure to be honest. Just after it happened there was a replay from a side angle and I thought I see Romero spit. My wife was certain he did straight away as it happened.

  3. Fornals wouldn’t have reacted like that to just name calling (it happens regularly during every game) ….. Romero spat on him in my opinion.

  4. Romero is a dirty player and he showed what he was made of during that incident. I am sure he not only DID something, but also SAID something very serious (or insulting) to Fornals. There is no other explanation to Pablo’s reaction otherwise.

    Either way, the Spuds lost and who has the last laugh?
