Tottenham Hotspur fans have reacted to their Under-18 squad’s 7-0 win over Norwich City, which saw first team manager Mauricio Pochettino’s son score a goal.
The Spurs youngsters faced the Canaries in the South Under-18 Premier League on Saturday, enjoying a rather one-sided victory that maintained their unbeaten start to the season. Harvey White opened the scoring early on and further goals by Rayan Clarke and Armando Shashoua put them 3-0 up by half-time.
This u18s team looks something looking at the recent results. Hopefully most of them will represent spurs in future

Dilian Markanday scored the team’s fourth in the second half and was joined on the scoreline by fellow teammates Troy Parrott and Clarke – who scored his second of the match at Hotspur Way – before Pochettino’s son, Maurizio, came off the bench to score his side’s seventh against Norwich’s youngsters.
The player wasn’t the only one enjoying his moment, however, as Tottenham fans on Twitter reacted to his goal by making cheeky puns that assumed it was their manager playing for the youth side and not his son.
Expect him on the touch line at 3pm in full kit…

Another son making a father proud – @Cristiano Jr has more goals this season than his father this season so far
