Fans of Tottenham have been reacting to a post on Twitter, in which Spurs defender Toby Alderweireld shared a picture.

In his post, the 31-year-old shared a photograph of himself in a recent training session with Tottenham following the unexpected break from the football season, before adding the comment: “Getting used to the new normal. It won’t be the same without you guys but can’t wait for the Premier League to get going again.”

How well do you remember Heung-Min Son's time with Spurs? - The Lilywhites signed Son from which Bundesliga side?

In reaction to his tweet, fans of the club flocked to have their say on the matter, with many suggesting that they are very much looking forward to seeing the defender and their club back in action soon, while others simply sent messages of adoration to the defender.

Since arriving at Spurs from Atlético Madrid for a fee of £14.40million back in 2015, Alderweireld has gone on to make 195 appearances for the club, scoring seven goals and providing five assists.

So far this season, the defender has made 27 appearances in the Premier League, scoring one goal and providing two assists, while averaging a WhoScored match rating of 6.79.

In addition to this, the 31-year-old has also featured six times in the Champions League this season, in which he has averaged a very disappointing average match rating of 6.19.

However, despite these below-average performances, it would seem that many of the Spurs fans still can’t wait to see the defender back in action.

One fan even thought that he was saying goodbye to Jan Vertonghen.

With Spurs having nine games of their season remaining upon the resumption of the Premier League season, it is likely that their fans will be hoping that both Alderweireld and his side will make an improvement on their defensive from over the first 29 games of their season, in which they have managed to keep just four clean sheets – joint worse in the league – as well as conceding 40 goals – 15 less than Sheffield United, who are one place above Spurs in the table.
