Zokora marks Spurs exit with insane goal rampage

Goal-starved midfielder Didier Zokora left his former Tottenham Hotspur teammates scratching their heads when he unleashed a devastating torrent of wonder goals in his final training session ahead of a move to Sevilla.

Ivorian international Zokora joined Spurs from Saint Etienne in 2006 and quickly became a popular figure. However, his lack of proficiency in front of goal was a source of both irritation and wonder for the White Hart Lane faithful.

The 28-year-old didn't get his name on the scoresheet in over 130 appearances but it seems that an imminent transfer to La Liga side Sevilla has caused a remarkable change in his fortunes.

Zokora stunned onlookers during his farewell training session yesterday, firing 13 sensational goals past Brazilian goalkeeper / nonsense man Heurelho Gomes.

"Didi was on fire," Spurs manager Harry Redknapp told journalists while negotiating a deal for half a washing machine on the Goldhawk Road.

"Usually he couldn't hit a barn door with a banjo, but he got some beauties yesterday. Every time he got the ball he scored - one was from about 50 yards.

"Granted, Gomes had accidentally tied his laces round the goalpost at time, but it was still a belter."
