Jack Grealish has taken to social media to like a tweet that mocked Tottenham and Aston Villa’s rivals Birmingham City. Spurs are in with a chance of winning their first silverware since 2008 following last night’s 2-0 win over Brentford in the Carabao Cup semi-final.
FC Spartak Moscow’s Twitter account bizarrely got involved on the topic after responding to a question about who would win the competition. When asked on Twitter, ‘Who’s winning the Carabao Cup?’, the Russian club replied, ‘What is Carabao Cup? Carling Cup only’.
The Russian outfit reacted in a rather blunt fashion. The tweet reads: “Even Birmingham City won this. Do grow up.”
It was soon discovered that Villa captain Grealish liked the tweet. And the eagle-eyed team running the Spartak Moscow Twitter account noticed it too.
