Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur announced on Thursday that Dulux would become the team’s first-ever ‘Official Paint Supplier.’

However, the relationship got off to an odd start when the paint brand started trolling the North London side.

Spurs confirmed that Dulux, the brand best known for using an Old English Sheepdog as its mascot, in a typical corporate tweet that we see all too often from football club accounts these days.

However, the Dulux account then started acting very strangely.

As ‘banter’ questions started to come in about the partnership with Dulux, whoever was running the paint brand’s account started to troll the recent history of the club which isn’t looking very bright at the moment under the leadership of the maligned Jose Mourinho.

One fan asked if the dog in the picture will be able to play at centre back and Dulux replied “he might do a better job.”

Other tweets from Dulux included mocking Spurs’ lack of silverware and their empty trophy cabinet, which they haven’t added to since they won the League Cup in 2008.

Although the tweets have since been deleted by Dulux, many have taken screenshots meaning that they’ll probably live on in Twitter football banter history.

Many joked that whoever was running the account that day was probably a fan of Arsenal, Tottenham’s most fierce rivals or even a disgruntled fan of Spurs.

It remains to be seen what will happen next in this already tumultuous relationship but we reckon this might be the last we’ve seen of Dulux’s Twitter antics but at least it gave a few people a chuckle.

In the meantime, 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.

The team is definitely in need of a facelift as they have won just one of their last five matches with Mourinho coming under heavy scrutiny for his approach to games.

They do have another League Cup final just on the horizon though and a win there would definitely turn some frowns upside down – but might not get the Dulux social media person their job back...
