A Tottenham Hotspur rep conducted a behind-the-scenes interview with Jason Sudeikis while the SNL alum was filming the now-renowned Ted Lasso English Premier League promo for NBC Sports. During the discussion, Sudeikis reveals the extent to which his own knowledge of soccer parallels Coach Lasso's: that is, he played FIFA as a kid but has otherwise never really watched the sport.

Nevertheless, since the club permitted him to keep his gear from the shoot, the We're The Millers star will be joining the ranks of celebrity Hotspur fans such as Steve Nash, Jude Law, and Adam Richman. For whatever that's worth.
