Neal Maupay continues James Maddison feud on social media after celebration spat during Spurs vs Brentford

Neal Maupay has continued his feud with James Maddison on social media after their on-field spat.

On Wednesday night, Brentford took on Tottenham Hotspur in a London derby in the Premier League.

After 15 minutes, the visitors went ahead as Maupay scored to make it 1-0.

The Brentford man then mocked Maddisonby copying his darts celebration, which did not go down well as the pair exchanged words shortly afterwards.

However, Maddison had the last laugh as his Spurs side came away 3-2 winners.

When asked about Maupay’s celebration during his post-match interview, Maddison savagely said: “He hasn’t scored enough goals to have his own celebration.”

However, Maupay has now snapped back, writing on Instagram: “Went a bit early with that one. Gutted we couldn’t get the win. More goals and less relegations in my career than James Maddison. We go again Monday.”

When asked about the incident after the match, Spurs boss Ange Postecoglou said: “Like I said, we just needed to get back to concentrating on what’s important to us, not spending time arguing with the referee or the opposition, or doing things that aren’t going to help us achieving our objective.

“I’m not a fan of it, I don’t like the whole bravado, pushing people around. If you’re that brave about things, my players and their players, get into a UFC cage and I’ll see how brave they are.”

He continued: “We’re out there to play football. And that’s what I want our guys to do, focus on playing football. And they shouldn’t get motivated by things that aren’t really that important to us. Like I said, we got sucked in first half. Second half was much better.”

Spurs will be back in Premier League action this weekend as they take on Everton on Saturday afternoon.
