It is no secret that Tottenham Hotspur fans enjoyed seeing their January recruit Dejan Kulusevski in action last season, with the Swede dishing out impressive performances as soon as he arrived from Turin. In just 18 appearances for the north London side, Kulusevski registered 5 goals and 8 assists in the Premier League, while also averaging a match rating of 7.19, as per whoscored.com.
As he teamed up with Spurs’ ever-reliable Kane-Son duo, Antonio Conte’s newfound trio were able to lead the side to a 4th place finish on the table. Kulusevski’s productivity was crucial to propel the team into going on an almost unbeaten run (barring a 1-0 loss to Brighton) since March that helped secure the UCL qualification spot.
Naturally, the fans have loved the Swede’s presence at White Hart Lane and even christened a chant for him that is sung to the tune of ABBA’s ‘Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight).’
But it looks Tottenham supporters have found another way to show their appreciation for the player as a personalized home kit that combines the No. 21 print with the word ‘Kulusexy’ recently surfaced n Twitter.
The custom shirt is Tottenham’s new home kit for the upcoming season, evident from the distinct PL font and the neon shade collar and sleeve ends. Furthermore, it showcases with pride the Champions League badge on the right arm sleeve that Spurs deservedly lay a claim to.
This show of love for an on-loan player goes to show the immense value he has added to the club in a short period of time. As Spurs signed Kulusevski on an 18-month loan deal, the player is currently set to return to Juventus this time next year.
However, if he does impress the hierarchy and the White Hart Lane faithful as he has done so till now, then surely the ‘Kulusexy’ shirt could be here to stay for a few years in England.
