Tottenham wanted to honor Wayne Gretzky but misspelled his jersey

Wednesday September 23rd, 2015

NHL legend Wayne Gretzky stopped by London’s White Hart Lane to take in Tottenham’s League Cup game against archrival Arsenal. After what Spurs did to The Great One before the game, it’s unclear which side he ended up pulling for. 

Tottenham presented Gretzky with a custom jersey, but made a crucial error. 

The club sent out its own tweet showing off the goof but deleted it after they noticed the unfortunate error and issued an apology. 

You’d think a team with guys named Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen would be better at spelling.
