‘Never seen anyone like him in 70 years’- Some Spurs fans react to Dembele’s exit


Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that they have come to an agreement with Chinese Super League side Guangzhou R&F for the transfer of midfielder Mousa Dembele. The move certainly doesn’t come as a surprise as the midfielder’s current contract with the club only ran until the end of the season which would have seen him depart the club on a free transfer.

Furthermore, Dembele had more than his fair share of injuries in recent months and there were doubts if his body was capable of copping up with the rigours of Premier League football. Even though a move was inevitable, Spurs fans will be extremely sad to see him go given how important a player he has been for the team in the last few seasons.

In his six and a half years in North London, Dembele has become a bit of a cult hero as he enthralled fans with his trademark runs, where he would ghost past players like they weren’t there.

After the announcement, there has been an outpouring of emotions on social media from Spurs fans, which indicates how highly rated he was at the club. Here are some of the reactions from some Spurs fans on hearing of Dembele’s exit:
