Chat sh*t, get banged: Victorious Jamie Vardy outfoxes Harry Kane on Twitter

"Chat sh*t, get banged" has become the modern adage in football.

And Harry Kane discovered this the hard way on Monday night.

The Tottenham striker had posted a picture of a pack of lions on Instagram a few weeks ago. The Spurs were in dominant form and were confident that they could catch up and pounce on any Leicester City slip.


Following a 4-0 defeat of Stoke, Kane had said that Tottenham were "on their tails". "We are ready to put the pressure on Leicester. We think we can do it," he said.

On Monday night, the social media post came back to bite Kane in the behind. Spurs surrendered a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea and hand the Premier League trophy to the Foxes.

And true to his now-famous catch phrase, Vardy came with the perfect reply to Kane's Instagram post. He tweeted a picture of the Lion King's Mufassa falling down a cliff, with simply an ellipsis as the caption.

A picture does speak a thousand words, and with this one genius tweet Vardy made sure he had the last laugh.


Vardy's tweet was soon hailed as the "tweet of the night" and it has received over 91,000 retweets in 11 hours.

Kane, however, was magnanimous after his team missed out on the title. "Congratulations to Leicester on what they achieved," he tweeted, and promised to finish the season on a strong note.

Both strikers have been fighting it out on the field for the golden boot. Kane has scored 25 goals in the league, three ahead of Vardy, who was voted the 2016 Footballer of the Year by the Football Writers' Association. Vardy also broke a Premier League record this season by scoring in 11 consecutive matches.

Ironically, they will next team up for England over the summer when they play in France for the Euro 2016. Here's hoping the burn isn't too deep and the banter between the two lives on.
