Toby Alderweireld takes to Twitter to address Spurs fans


The North London derby on Saturday was a fiercely contested affair that had everything one would expect in a derby game including goals, hard tackles, penalties and even a red card.

Tottenham created more chances than the away side over the ninety minutes but could have found themselves on the losing side if not for Lloris saving Aubameyang’s spot-kick in the 89th minute of the encounter.

Unlike the games against Burnley and Chelsea, Spurs actually created some decent chances in the game but their finishing let them down. One of Tottenham’s best chances fell to Toby Alderweireld who met the ball on the volley unmarked 12 yards from goal but the defender couldn’t hit the target.

With the Belgian yet to sign a new contract with Spurs, he would be free to leave for a bid of £25 million the summer. The defender who was celebrating his 30th birthday yesterday could have featured in his final North London derby for Spurs.

He sent a message to the fans after the game in which he insisted that he would have preferred three points to thirty candles on his birthday cake.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. First of all I wish a happy birthday Toby and I wish you all the best for the future (hoping it will be at Spurs) and I totally agree with you about the referees. I think that VAR is needed ASP because the referring has become lousy and funnily enough we are nearly on the wrong end. Fouls are being not noticed against us and the most important decisions are made against us. Ok Harry penalty was an exemption. Someone from heaven was on our side I think. Good luck on Tuesday. You are my favorite player. When I was young I used to play in the same position and I can see in you a modern King Franz Beckenbauer. I wish you do not leave. I think that it’s an insult for refusing your wishes for a new contract. Well Toby all the best.

  2. This article tells us nothing about whether Toby is staying at Spurs and being given a new and better contract. To lose him would be crazy as he is one of the finest defenders in the game today. To get a replacement as good will cost us a fortune.
    As regards Christian Eriksen, it is vital for us to keep him and give him a better contract. I saw a ridiculous article the other day about Garett Bale returning to Spurs in exchange for Eriksen plus cash. First of all we could not afford Bale’s wages and even more importantly, we just cannot afford to lose Eriksen.
