This tackle by Stoke’s Charlie Adam has Tottenham midfielder Paulinho sidelined for up to a month. It’s not the first time Adam has seemingly gone after Spurs players, including a couple of incidents involving Gareth Bale.
Adam took to Twitter to clear the air:
Just for the record and to the people tweeting me abuse saying so, I don’t and never have had anything against @SpursOfficial— Charlie Adam (@Charlie26Adam)
Paulinho’s fellow Brazilian teammate, Sandro, had a message for Adam as well, using his own Twitter and Instagram accounts to send a menacing warning:
Charlie Adams - THE BEAST IS WATCHING YOU!!! - @sandroraniere
Adam may be a little more cautious next time he takes on Tottenham.
