Stoke Ace Hilariously Mocks Himself on Twitter as Former Club Draw Real Madrid in Champions League

Saturday August 26th, 2017

Despite his obvious wealth and footballing ability, Peter Crouch has always come across as a likeable character.

The towering striker's sense of humour has not been lost on him regardless of his fame, with his infamous "I'd probably be a virgin" quote when asked what he'd be if he wasn't a footballer sending many a football fan into hysterics way back when.

Crouch has been at it again on social media recently too, with the veteran Stoke City forward's self-deprecating nature coming to the fore in a recent tweet on his Twitter account:

For those unaware of the reference, Crouch got himself sent off when Tottenham and Real Madrid last locked horns in the Champions League during the 2010/11 season.

Back then the clubs faced off in the quarter-final stage of UEFA's flagship club tournament, and Spurs were resoundly beaten 4-0 following Crouch's dismissal.

Good on him for making a mockery of his own stupid behaviour from that night, but Tottenham fans will be hoping for something that doesn't border on a thrashing when the teams take each other on in this season's Champions League group stage!
