Dulux had unleashed a hilarious set of comments against Tottenham earlier in the day
When Tottenham had divulged that they would be getting Dulux on board as the first ever official paint sponsor in the Premier League, the club would have envisaged coming in the limelight. And while it did manage to garner the headlines, it was for all the wrong issues.
Announcing the latest development on their Twitter profile, Dulux received a slew of intriguing replies to their post. Many of them took a jibe at Tottenham with users asking Dulux about Tottenham’s barren run.
Amongst the hilarious replies was a comical question as well, with one user asking Dulux if their mascot, the sheep dog would be better at defending than Tottenham’s CBs. And rather than standing up for their new partners, the paint company decided to have at Tottenham’s expense as they replied the dog might do a better job.
The Twitter rampage by Dulux saw the company become the second trending topic in the UK with people bemused at the company’s actions. While the antics did a world of good to Dulux, Tottenham’s image took a hit owing to them being besmirched.
So after Spurs announced a deal with Dulux this morning, it seems the admin of the paint company was on a one man mission to ruin the whole thing..

Mourinho Asked For Reaction On Dulux’s Comments
Jose Mourinho who was speaking ahead of his side’s Premier League encounter was quizzed about what his reaction was towards the comments by Dulux. However, the Tottenham supremo was clearly caught off guard with him having no knowledge about the issue at hand.
“I know you’re a fan of dogs, are you happy with the new sponsor, the Dulux dog?” read a question directed at Mourinho to which the coach replied, “What’s that?”
He also talked about his side’s upcoming tie with Everton and what it meant for the club.
“And of course the Goodison match is very important. The distance between the two teams is very, very short. Of course they have one match in hand, in relation to us. But the distance is very, very short. They have similar objectives than us. They are going to fight with us, and with other clubs to try the best possible position, and see if we and them can get a European position,” he said.
“So it’s an important match tomorrow. We need to separate the waters. We need to say: the cup final is important, but is not the match tomorrow, we need to focus totally on a very difficult match.”
