David Seaman angers Arsenal fans with what he said about Tottenham

David Seaman has risked the wrath of Arsenal supporters – by admitting he would want Tottenham to win the Champions League.

Spurs progressed to the quarter-finals of the competition with a 1-0 victory over Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday, securing a 4-0 aggregate win.

All eyes will be on the last-eight draw next week as Spurs fans dream of European glory – and they will be backed by Gunners legend Seaman.

The former goalkeeper won two Premier League titles at Arsenal – but has admitted he would be happy if Mauricio Pochettino’s men went on to win the competition.

“Seriously, I swear, I would want them to win,” he said on talkSPORT.

“If they were in a final against a foreign team I would want Tottenham to beat them, no doubt about that.

“Say Tottenham were playing Bayern Munich, Barcelona , whoever – I would want the English team to win.”

Seaman went on to confirm he wanted Manchester United , who his Arsenal side had been battling for the title, to win the Champions League in 1999.

“I played 75 times for my country, I’d want the English team to win. That’s just the way I am,” he added.

But it was his comments on Spurs that didn’t go down well among those that previously adored him in north London.


Arsenal and Spurs continued their rivalry on Saturday as they played out a 1-1 draw at Wembley.

That point left Tottenham in third while Arsenal remain fifth in the Premier League, four points adrift of their north London counterparts.

The Gunners are in Europa League action on Thursday night as they travel to France to take on Rennes.
