Former Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld gives an emotional message to all supporters

Former Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld gave a heartfelt message to all of the fans as he returned to see his former club.

The Belgian professional footballer made a name for himself with the Lilwyhites and was a faithful servant through the years. The 32-year-old centre-back went on to play 236 games for the North London club across all competitions, scoring nine goals and providing five assists.

The Belgian duo of Jan Vertonghen and Alderweireld were instrumental in the backline for the Lilywhites over the years. The fans were filled with messages straight from the heart for the current Al-Duhail SC defender.

The 32-year-old Belgian replied to all the messages in an emotional manner and was almost speechless with all the love that was showered:

“I think that’s why we play football for the fans. To make them happy. To fight for them you know and after six years those kinds of messages you know, I’m a little bit speechless”

The Lilywhites have been in a bit of a rebuilding phase and there is an air of excitement with the arrival of Antonio Conte at the club. Spurs currently field a relatively young backline with the likes of Cristian Romero, Emerson Royal, and Sergio Reguilon playing key roles.

Toby Alderweireld played a crucial role for Tottenham Hotspur for several years

Eric Dier is the most experienced of the lot in that defensive lineup. Mauricio Pochettino led Tottenham to the UEFA Champions League back in 2019 but the club has struggled to achieve the same level of success since.

The club has hired and sacked two Portuguese managers in that time. The appointment of Antonio Conte would hopefully steer the club in a better direction. The 32-year-old former Tottenham Hotspur defender played and served the club for a long time.

His emotional verdict is a testimony of the fact that football is much more than just a game to millions of people.
