Throwback: Robert Pires loses his sh*t with a Tottenham fan


Whenever we think about Robert Pires – which is more often than you might imagine – we generally think of him as the cooler than cool attacking midfielder that appeared to be cut from silk so classy were his performances for Arsenal.

Sure, that botched penalty against Manchester City aside, we didn’t think Pires ever really lost his cool while operating as the scourge of Premier League defences at Highbury.

But north London derbies can be weird, so perhaps it’s no surprise Pires did in fact lose his sh*t with one supporter during a trip to White Hart Lane.

Still, invariably the Frenchman had the last laugh against Arsenal’s fierce rivals; in 12 appearances against Spurs for the Gunners, Pires scored nine times and tasted defeat not once.

Fair play, Bobby.
