Tottenham Hotspur fans got a chance to see some of their heroes from yesteryear pull on the famous lilywhite shirt one more time on Saturday at the club’s brand new stadium.

About 45,000 fans watched a Spurs legends team featuring the likes of Jurgen Klinsmann, Rafael van der Vaart and David Ginola play against an Inter Milan side.

The game was the second to be played at the new 62,062-capacity Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in order to gain a necessary safety certificate ahead of Wednesday night’s Premier League fixture against Crystal Palace.

One player who did not take to the field was Chris Waddle. The former Spurs winger took to Twitter to admit that he was disappointed not to receive an invite to play in the game, but showed is class by wishing them luck in the new stadium.

Waddle played 138 times for Spurs, scoring 33 goals for the club between 1985-1989 before joining Marseille.

Here’s what he had to say on Twitter.
