Jose Mourinho pleaded ignorance after his club were brutally mocked by their new paint sponsor Dulux within hours of Tottenham proudly announcing the partnership on social media.

The north London club revealed that Dulux had become the club’s official paint supplier, with the company’s famous dog getting a tour of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and Hotspur Way training ground.

But they were soon mocked by their new partner in hastily-deleted tweets, with the social media team hitting the wrong tone.

Responding to other users’ tweets, they made fun of the club’s lack of recent silverware, posting a picture of an empty trophy cabinet being for sale and then made a barb about the club’s defenders.

In a reply to a tweet asking whether the Dulux dog can play centre-back, they tweeted: ‘He might do a better job’.

The tweets certainly made a splash as Dulux was the second top trend on Twitter in the UK.

Spurs said the partnership will see the club “benefit from the unrivalled expertise in paint and colour” of the country’s leading paint supplier, with all club buildings getting a facelift using specific paint colour matches.

Mourinho, who has got bigger problems to deal with at present following his side’s worrying run of form, was questioned about the social media storm ahead of tomorrow night’s match against Everton but claimed to have no knowledge of the iconic dog.

‘What’s that?’ a clearly puzzled Mourinho asked, before the club’s press officier swiftly attempted to take matters in another direction.
