For a second successive year, a desperate Tottenham player has attempted to disguise himself as a member of the Chelsea first team squad in order to finally win some silverware.
After finishing below the Blues for the millionth time last season and being knocked out of the FA Cup by their bitter rivals, Spurs striker Vincent Jassen appears to have had enough at the North London club following the sale of England defender Kyle Walker.
On Tuesday afternoon, CarefreeDaily posted a picture of what appeared to be Vincent Jassen shopping for a Chelsea shirt with a friend in the Chelsea Megastore as the Spurs player had hoped to become Chelsea’s new number nine.

Although the Dutch striker tried his utmost best to convince the staff at the Chelsea store that he was now a genuine Chelsea player, with a record of two goals in 27 matches, staff at the Stamford Bridge Megastore were in no doubt that the striker was actually a Spurs player and quickly escorted the rival forward off the premises after informing the Dutch international that the vacant no.9 shirt had already been filled by Alvaro Morata.
This is not the first time that a Tottenham player has tried desperately to escape North London for Stamford Bridge in what continues to be a big problem.
Last season, young winger Spurs Georges-Kevin NKoudou tried – in vain – to disguise himself as a Chelsea player by posing for a picture with a fan in a Chelsea training shirt.

The winger was quickly forced to appologise by Tottenham, although the player was said to be very reluctant to hide his excitement at having worn a proper shirt for the first time since arriving in England.
