Tottenham midfielder Sandro taunted Charlie Adam after the Stoke midfielder injured Paulinho with a rash tackle in their Premier League match Sunday.

It's the fifth time that Adam has been involved in a controversial tackle against a Spurs player, leading some to point fingers and suggest that he has an agenda against the club.

It's beyond an unusual coincidence now. I genuinely hate very few sportsman but 'Charlie Adam we know who you are' pic.twitter.com/GRx4NoOURP

Furthermore, Tottenham themselves are set to take the matter further, with a spokesman telling Reuters (via Eurosport): "We are not happy and we have contacted the FA." 

It all moved Adam, who has seen red twice in his career against Spurs, to explain himself Monday on Twitter:

Just for the record and to the people tweeting me abuse saying so, I don't and never have had anything against @SpursOfficial

— Charlie Adam (@Charlie26Adam) December 30, 2013

... And I would never intend to injure a fellow professional

— Charlie Adam (@Charlie26Adam) December 30, 2013

Sandro appeared to see the funny side, Instagramming a picture looking menacing and writing: "Charlie AdamTHE BEAST IS WATCHING YOU!!!"

Mind you, if he was being serious, Bleacher Report would have the FA on its backs more than Sandro.
