Tottenham Hotspur players of yesteryear have been taking to Twitter to pay their tributes to former player Justin Edinburgh, who sadly died at the age of 49 earlier today.

Edinburgh spent last weekend in Madrid with fellow Spurs legends to watch their former side take on Liverpool in the Champions League final at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium but fell unexpectedly ill and suffered cardiac arrest upon his return to England and died in hospital five days later.

The left-back spent a decade playing for Tottenham, making 258 appearances in all competitions and winning the FA Cup in 1991 and League Cup in 1999 before moving to Portsmouth.

He was appointed Leyton Orient manager in November of 2017, and led the club to 45 wins in his 82 games in charge, including promotion from the National League to League Two this season.

Here’s what some of the former Spurs players have had to say about the tragic news.
