Former Spur Mido returned to London over the weekend to watch Spurs cruise to a 3-1 victory over Fulham on Saturday.
The Egyptian striker netted 19 times in his 61 appearances for the Lilywhites and featured alongside the likes of Jermain Defoe and Robbie Keane.
The 35-year-old reminisced about his times in north London with the Spurs website:
“I had some great days and made great friends,” he said.
“It was an honour to play for Tottenham. I wish I had stayed (longer). One of the biggest mistakes throughout my career was to decide to leave.”
“Tottenham is a great club and I’m still a great fan. I follow every game and I’m very glad we’re doing well.”
Mido initially joined Spurs on loan from Serie A side AS Roma but finalised a permanent move to the Lilywhites in 2006.
“The fans have always been great to me, since day one,” Mido continued.
“I was lucky that I started well – my first game, two goals. I remember I played for an hour. I wasn’t 100 per cent fit because for two or three months before that I wasn’t playing regularly for Roma.”
Mido left Spurs in 2007 for fellow Premier League side Middlesborough and is now eyeing up a career in management following his studies in football coaching and development.
