Some Spurs fans on social media got emotional after seeing Jan Vertonghen and Erik Lamela exchange messages with one another on social media.

Lamela has been nominated for the Puskas Award 2021 for his incredible Rabona goal in the North London derby last year.

If the Argentine takes home the award, it will be the second consecutive year that a Spurs player has won it, with Son Heung-min scooping it last year for his solo effort against Burnley.

Vertonghen, who departed Spurs to join Benfica in the summer of 2020, took to social media to insist that his old Tottenham teammate, Lamela, deserves the award. The Argentine responded to the Belgian’s post, thanking him for his kind words.

The pair’s exchange has struck an emotional chord with some Spurs fans on social media, many of whom insisted they would have both Lamela and Vertonghen back in North London in a heartbeat.

Spurs Web Opinion

Since I started supporting Spurs, the squad from around 2015-2018 has been by far the most likeable group of players. The fan base certainly resonated with them a great deal. It is a shame that they do not have any silverware to show for their efforts at the club.
