After the warm greeting, Son gave Zendaya a small gift hamper. It looked like more of an official gift from the club because the hamper had the Tottenham Hotspur logo on it.

Zendaya is currently getting all the love in the world from her fans. Additionally, the Tottenham Hotspur fanbase is also very welcoming to new fans. However, this isn’t the first time Zendaya and Holland were in a soccer-related atmosphere. A month ago, the celebrity duo also explained why they prefer soccer over American football.

Soccer is better than American football!

The celebrity duo was doing a bunch of fun shoots for the LADbible YouTube channel. The celebrity duo was playing ‘Agree to Disagree’ in an attempt to put a close to some of the ‘internet’s biggest ever debates’. One of the statements was ‘American football is better than soccer’. Zendaya and Holland, both of them, disagreed with the statement immediately.

Zendaya opened by saying that she felt American football was very dangerous. Holland then weighs in by saying that he would never understand why everyone called it football. The simple reason is that in American ‘football’ players rarely use their feet to play the game. Zendaya then burst out laughing after Holland suggested that American football should be called throwball.

Holland concluded by saying that he felt soccer is the greatest sport of all time. He also felt that soccer is the ‘worlds’ sport. Zendaya didn’t say much but she rightfully nodded in agreement all the way. The celebrity duo then spoke about their experience when they met Messi and Mbappe at the Ballon d’Or ceremony in 2021. Tom Holland also revealed how he tried to convince Mbappe to join Tottenham Hotspur.
