The Hollywood star watched Spurs beat Brighton 1-0 at the new White Hart Lane
Can someone tell Zac Efron he’s not allowed to support Tottenham AND Arsenal?
The Hollywood star wore a Spurs shirt at the new White Hart Lane during the 1-0 victory over Brighton on Tuesday night.
Efron accepted an invitation from Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli and watched on in delight as Christian Eriksen struck at the death.
But it would appear the 31-year-old isn’t a die-hard fan.
Seven years ago, he was spotted wearing an Arsenal shirt during a visit to the Emirates to watch the Gunners play Chelsea.
Following two teams is considered an unforgivable crime in English football – and Efron risks the wrath of north London by openly supporting the two fierce rivals.
He now joins the likes of Snoop Dogg and Justin Bieber on the infamous list of glory-hunting celebrities.
Nonetheless, in a 2014 interview with the BBC, Efron admitted he is a huge football fan.
He said: “I get to a few LA Galaxy games, but not enough. It’s fun and the sport is really starting to grow in the United States.
