Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Gary Lineker has summed up his time in North London in just four words.

The 58-year-old replied to a Tweet from the official Spurs account to mark the 30th anniversary of the England international joining the club from Barcelona in 1989.

Over three seasons, he scored 67 goals in 105 league games and won the FA Cup while playing for the club following a 2-1 victory against Nottingham Forest at Wembley.

He finished as top scorer in the First Division in the 1989–90 season, scoring 24 goals as Spurs finished third in the table.

He replied to the club’s Tweet with “Great memories. Great club.” to sum up his time in North London before he moved on to  sign two-year contract with Japanese club Nagoya Grampus Eight.

Lineker has since gone on to forge a successful media career and is the host of Match of the Day on BBC along with BT Sport’s coverage of the Champions League.
