Lots of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to voice their delight after owner Daniel Levy presented former defender and Belgium international Toby Alderweireld with a leaving present following his departure from N17 this summer.

Alderweireld, who spent six years at the north London outfit following his move to Spurs from Spanish outfit Atletico Madrid in 2015, departed the club during the summer for Qatari club Al-Duhail. However, he made a guest appearance during the half-time interval of Tottenham’s European clash against Vitesse Arnhem on Thursday evening at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, which resulted in a 3-2 victory for Antonio Conte’s side in his first game in charge at the club after replacing predecessor Nuno Espirito Santo.

Can Conte lead Spurs into the top four this season?





Despite leaving for Al-Duhail SC in July, the Belgian has only just received a leaving gift from Levy, with Alderweireld presented (via TransSPURS) with a watch at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, a gift the 32-year-old looked pretty pleased with.

What did these Spurs fans have to say?

“That’s a Casio in that box if Levy has anything to do with it”


Love this. @AlderweireldTob was a great player for us and should be spoken along with verts and Ledley”


“Sorry its only a Casio Toby, but I’ve spent so much on the wrong managers recently. It’s all I could afford”


“Straight from the IWC sponsor, doesn’t cost Levy a penny”


“I hope that cheapstake Levy doesn’t take that away from our January window transfer budget you can’t put that pass him considering his behaviour towards Zagreb over Modric and Brad Friedel”


OMG levy giving something away x Toby treasure that x your a star who will forever be in Spurs Fans hearts xx”

“I respect Levy for this”

Man is a legend for our club despite not winning a trophy. Gave us a platform to get close to the biggest prize 

“Oh so he does have a heart then? Good to know”


The Belgian played a huge role in Tottenham’s recent high point under Mauricio Pochettino having made 236 appearances for Spurs in total and 25 in the Champions League.

Following their victory against Vitesse, Spurs will be hoping they can continue their winning momentum when they take on Everton at Goodison Park today in Conte’s first game in charge as Spurs manager ahead of the international break, before the Lilywhites return to Premier League action when they take on Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium on Sunday 21st November.
