Spurs fans see red over logo

Tottenham fans have reacted with fury to news that a logo in red - the colour of north London rivals Arsenal - will feature on the team's shirts next season.

Tottenham, who have signed a new sponsorship deal with holiday company Thomson, tried to play down the controversy by saying that red featured in the club crest.

Our colours are predominantly white and dark blue. Fans will not like this
Spurs fan Paul Bowman

But season-ticket holder Paul Bowman said: "It's outrageous that red will appear on our shirts.

"There is no tradition of red within the club and this is a club that thrives on tradition.

"Red is an Arsenal colour.

"Our colours are predominantly white and dark blue. Fans will not like this."

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy said: "Red has been part of our crest for 20 years. This sponsorship deal is terrific for the fans and the club."

Tottenham's multi-million pound deal with holiday giants Thomson - whose colour has always been red - is the biggest in their history.

The holiday company's re-branded `smile' logo will replace `Holsten' on the front of Spurs shirts for the next two seasons.

And as part of the deal Tottenham fans will receive exclusive offers from Thomson.
