Graham Roberts has issued a good luck message to Tottenham on Twitter ahead of their Champions League clash on Tuesday.
Spurs are without a win in their last five games across all competitions and will be hopeful of ending the disappointing run.
The north London face a home match against Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League group stages and will be looking to better the 0-0 draw from the reverse fixture in Germany.
They are currently involved in a fascinating group alongside Monaco, Leverkusen and CSKA Moscow, with the four teams separated by just three points.
Spurs are currently second and still have two of their three games left to play at home against Leverkusen and CSKA, with Spurs using the national stadium Wembley this season.
Former player Roberts posted “Come on you Spurs” on his personal Twitter account ahead of the game.
Spurs will be without key pair Toby Alderweireld and Harry Kane against Leverkusen, with the latter returning to training this week.
The 23-year-old striker could be available for the Premier League clash with Arsenal on Sunday, but Pochettino confirmed he would miss the European match.
Spurs will be hoping that Vincent Janssen can net his first goal from open play for the club, while the defence will be aware of former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez.
In other Tottenham news, Arsenal fans have reacted on Twitter to Pochettino’s nomination by FIFA.
