Video: Jan Vertonghen pulls down Nicklas Helenius’ shorts (Aston Villa 0-4 Spurs)
Aston Villa were hammered at home to Spurs in last night’s Capital One Cup tie, but the biggest humiliation of the evening came on one of the rare occasions when it looked like they might score.
Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen pulled down the shorts of Villa’s Nicklas Helenius as he raced through on goal.
Apparently, this doesn’t constitute a foul. Paul Lambert’s side didn’t get a penalty because Helenius did his best to carry on, despite the fact he was towing a Belgian with an underwear fetish at the time.
