Mousa Dembele hits the jackpot after finding £1million worth of TREASURE in his hotel cellar

Tottenham star Mousa Dembele has hit the jackpot after discovering £1million worth of treasure in his new hotel cellar.

The Belgian ace is set to open the accommodation called De Gulde Schoen – The Golden Shoe – in Antwerp, the city of his birth.

Dembele instructed archaeologists to give the 700-year-old premises a check before the rebuild.

And the 30-year-old is quids in after they found 18th-century porcelain, glass, pottery and tableware.

The Spurs star’s sister Assita co-owns the property.

She said: “This is something unique, and it fits perfectly with the building’s historic past.”

Some of the items are expected to be put on display at the hotel, with the rest given to local museums.

“We found the items in a closed-off area in the cellar. It was pure chance, as the space did not match the building plan,” added Antwerp city archaeologist Tim Bellens.

“The Dembele family want to build a spa and swimming pool in the basement, and invited us to look at it first.

“It is unclear why and how the items got there, but maybe it was stuff the owners wanted to get rid of.

“The building seems to have been a high-class tavern or hotel in the past.”
