Tottenham Hotspur winger Andros Townsend has tweeted an apology following the club's humiliating 3-0 defeat to rivals West Ham United on Sunday afternoon.
Although Sam Allardyce's Hammers have struggled badly on the road so far this season, they managed to shock Andre Villas-Boas' highly-fancied Spurs outfit with a comprehensive victory courtesy of second-half strikes from Winston Reid, Ricardo Vaz Te and former Manchester United starlet Ravel Morrison.
The defeat, only Spurs' second in the league so far this season, sent shockwaves around White Hart Lane and many home fans voiced their frustrations by vociferously booing the team as they left the field at the end of a hugely difficult 90 minutes.
The humiliating nature of the defeat led 22-year-old Townsend, who is in the England squad for the Three Lions' crucial upcoming World Cup qualifying double header against Montenegro and Poland at Wembley, to tweet an apology to the club's fans and offer a pledge that Villas-Boas' men will bounce back.
"Apologies to any fan that paid good money to watch that yesterday...... We will come back stronger for sure!," he said on his official Twitter account.
Spurs, who lie sixth in the Premier League table after Sunday's defeat, return to action following the international break with a trip to face Paul Lambert's youthful Aston Villa side on October 20.
