Fans say Dejan Kulusevski ‘hates Tottenham but knows ball’ after naming ex-Arsenal star in list of top five wingers | The Sun
SUPPORTERS claimed Dejan Kulusevski “hates Tottenham but knows ball” after he named an ex-Arsenal star in his list of top five all-time Premier League wingers.
And his controversial picks also included a Chelsea icon in first place as he left a Spurs legend in fifth.
The Sweden forward, 23, joined Tottenham from Juventus on a permanent basis this summer after impressing on loan last term.
Just like the rest of his team-mates, Kulusevski has shone under Ange Postecoglou and has scored three goals in his 13 top-flight outings this season.
He is a firm favourite with fans, but he has risked the wrath of some after telling TNT Sports his top five fave Premier League wingers.
Kulusevski got off on the right foot by naming former Spurs and Real Madrid ace Gareth Bale in fifth, but it was the man he picked in fourth that raised eyebrows.

He ranked Fulham’s former Chelsea and Arsenal wing wizard Willian above Bale.
Discussing the Brazilian, he said: “He's an unbelievable player, very underrated – so it's very good to watch him.”
Liverpool's Mohamed Salah was third before he opted for his ex-Juventus team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo in second.
Kulusevski then had another controversial choice as he picked his top one – and it was another player who achieved icon status at Tottenham's fierce rivals Chelsea.

And that star was Eden Hazard.
He said: “He has been my favourite player since I was young and he made me happy – he made everybody happy by watching him play because he was just a joy, like a child playing football, scoring and assisting.
“Of course I watched him a lot so some movements and turns with the ball I try to copy him as much as I can even though I'm much taller and it's a little bit more difficult.”
One supporter reacted to the clip on social media by writing: “Tottenham’s best player and he’s picking Willian and Hazard above Bale.
“He hates Spurs and knows ball, fair play.”
Those thoughts were echoed by another who said: “Hazard first, William 4th from a Spurs player is mad. He knows ball.”
“I don't believe who is number one for him,” said another supporter.
A fellow fan commented: “He is deffo Chelsea fan.”
While another said: “A very smart man. A Spurs player has Bale 5th. Wow what a beautiful time.”
