Thankfully the boys aren't this jumpy on the pitch.

Spurs spurned in spooky spoof

By Peter O'Dwyer


You’re never too old for a Halloween prank or two and well, when you finish training at midday what else would you have to do with yourself.

For Tottenham defender Kyle Walker scaring the living daylights out of his unsuspecting teammates seemed the best way to pass the time.

After teaming up with Spurs TV, Walker donned a dubious enough yet effective costume, hid behind a few boxes in a dimly lit room and gave the likes of Sandro, Jermaine Defoe and Andros Townsend the scare of their lives.

Although Walker’s prank lost a little momentum midway through the video with seemingly hard-as-nails Jan Vertonghen and assistant coach Steffen Freund barely batting an eyelid, he was bailed out by the frankly pathetic reaction of Heurelho Gomes.

As shocked as the likes of Townsend and Sandro were, it’s fair to assume everyone was more baffled by the sight of Emmanuel Adebayor who hasn’t exactly featured highly in Andre Villas Boas’ plans this season.
