Ivan Perisic has taken to Instagram to send a positive message to the Tottenham fans, thanking them for their support following his ACL injury news. 

Pedro Porro also shared words of encouragement with Ivan Perisic on social media, after his Tottenham Hotspur teammate was ruled out with a knee injury.

Many had suspected Ivan Perisic to be on his way out of Spurs this summer. The veteran Croatian joined the club on a free transfer last year to link up with his former boss, Antonio Conte.

With Conte gone, and Perisic not seeming to fit into new coach, Ange Postecoglou‘s plans, it seemed his brief stay in North London would be over.

Perisic has been strongly linked with a return to his first club, Hajduk Split. The club’s goalkeeper, Ognjen Cancareviceven told Germanijak that he has spoken to the Spurs man about a potential switch.

However, Perisic remained with the Lilywhites and has proven to be a fairly useful asset so far this season. The 34-year-old has contributed two assists in six appearances (Transfermarkt), but he will not play again for quite some time.

Perisic then took to Instagram himself to post the following message:

Spurs Web Opinion

To say Perisic was all but ready to leave the club this summer, it’s nice to see that he is still well-liked in the dressing room and has the backing of his teammates. Hopefully, he can get back to full fitness soon and enjoy the final years of his career.
