Andros Townsend has taken to Twitter to thank the Tottenham Hotspur supporters and to praise the club’s new stadium.
The former Spurs midfielder was part of the Crystal Palace squad which travelled to North London to face Mauricio Pochettino’s side in the first Premier League game to ever to be played at the brand new 62,062 capacity seater arena.
Townsend was named among the Palace substitutes by Roy Hodgson and came off the bench in the 80th minute but was unable to stop his side from losing 2-0.
After coming through the ranks at Spurs, went on to make 93 appearances for the club before his time in N17 came to an abrupt end.
In November 2015, Townsend was involved in an on-field argument with fitness coach Nathan Gardiner during a post-match warm-down where he shoved the coach in the chest. Townsend had been an unused substitute and was being urged to work harder by Gardiner.
Despite his acrimonious exit from Spurs which came just two months later, he is still regarded as ‘one of our own’ by many supporters.
Here’s what he had to say on Twitter.
