Toby Alderweireld speaks out on his time at Tottenham and facing Manchester City

Former Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld opened up on his time at the club ahead of the game against Manchester City (h/t Tottenham Official Website). The Belgian, who has now joined Al-Duhail, spoke about the memories at the club and his experience of playing against City.

Spurs begin their new season tomorrow and that too against defending champions Manchester City. The Belgian was a rock at the back for Spurs during his six-year stay with the club after he was signed from Atletico Madrid.

Alderweireld was a huge part of the Spurs backline during his time at the club and even at 32, he produced some fantastic showings. He was a part of the teams that went to the final of the 2019 Champions League.

The veteran defender spoke out on his memories at the club.

“I’ve only good memories. There are not a lot of players who stay at a club for six years now. I’m always very loyal, always happy to play. I never talk about myself, but maybe now is the moment… I always did my best, and I hope people see that every time I stepped onto the pitch, I gave 100 per cent for the shirt. I always wanted to be part of the Club’s history and the Club will be with me forever.”

Alderweireld scored his first goal against Man City

With Manchester City to face in the season opener, Alderweireld has his name attached to some memorable games and goals against City. He went on to speak about the same and wished his former mates the best.

“If I think about that time, that goal against City in 2015, I wouldn’t think about myself, I would think about the team, the feeling at White Hart Lane where we were so strong, so dynamic. The season after (2016/17) we went unbeaten at home. Hopefully the team can do it again on Sunday. That would be the perfect way to start the season.”

Spurs continue their journey without Alderweireld as it goes. The defender was indeed one of the best in the business. He went on to make 286 appearances for the club. His services will no doubt be missed.
