However, he is a passionate supporter of their North London rivals Arsenal instead.

Bent has even now revealed he wants the Gunners to win a trophy this season over England in the summer.

He told talkSPORT: “As an Arsenal fan I want the league. I want Arsenal over anything.”

Co-host Andy Goldstein then asked: “You don’t want FA Cup – Arsenal, Euros – England.”

Bent admitted it would still be a “close decision” before adding: “Champions League, Premier League over anything.”

He also revealed that an FA Cup and League Cup double would mean more than England winning a trophy.

The 40-year-old pundit continued: “FA Cup and League Cup. Nope, I’m not joking you. FA Cup, League Cup. Arsenal.”

Goldstein responded: “I just find that nuts, I really do.”
