Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla has issued an apology after he was pictured holding a sign that mocked rivals Tottenham.

The Spaniard was appearing on French TV alongside Arsenal legend Robert Pires and a female fan and was pictured with a piece of paper, on which were written the words: "What do we think of Tottenham? S***! What do we think of s***? Tottenham!"

The picture quickly went viral, but now the Arsenal star has insisted he was unaware what the sign said when he was photographed holding it.

Cazorla, who signed for Arsenal from Malaga in 2012, told his 888,000 Twitter followers: “Our apoligizes to the Totenham fans, we couldn’t see the paper. #alwaysfootballalwaysrespect.”

Relations between Arsenal and Tottenham have always been tetchy at best, but their rivalry hit the headlines recently when Arsenal winger Theo Walkcott was seen seemingly provoking Tottenham fans during the Gunners' 2-0 FA Cup win earlier this month.

The two teams have ben close rivals in the Premier League in recent seasons however Arsenal appeared to have pulled away and are challenging for the title, while Spurs are currently locked in a three-way battle with Liverpool and Everton for 4th spot and Champions League qualification.
