Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis took the opportunity to make fun of Tottenham at the club's annual general meeting on Thursday.

In answer to a shareholder's question over the promotion of NBC's Premier League coverage in the United States, Gazidis mocked Spurs for the £80million sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid.

"It is a tremendous development for the Premier League that NBC is involved as heavily as it is and promoting the Premier League in the way that it is," said Gazidis, who was the former deputy commissioner of the Major Soccer League.

"It is also true that there are Gareth Bale posters plastered all over Times Square - unfortunately he doesn't play for Tottenham Hotspur (any more), he now plays for one of our rivals."

Arsenal finished above Tottenham by a single point in the race for fourth place in the Barclays Premier League, which saw Arsene Wenger's side go on to qualify for the group stages of the Champions League once again.
