Peter Crouch has sent former club Tottenham a message on Twitter ahead of Spurs’ Champions League clash against Monaco on Wednesday evening.
The north London club will host the French Ligue 1 side at Wembley in Europe’s elite competition and the 35-year-old current Stoke forward offered his good luck.
Crouch was a part of the last Tottenham squad which competed in the Champions League in the 2010-11 season and via his personal Twitter account he shared that “it was quite good fun last time” with a wink emoticon.
The former England international came through the Tottenham academy after youth spells at QPR and Brentford.
He failed to make a senior appearance in his first spell at White Hart Lane and eventually returned to QPR in a £60,000 deal.
Following spells at Portsmouth, Aston Villa, Norwich, Southampton and Liverpool, Crouch moved back to Tottenham in the summer of 2009 in a £10million deal.
He spent two years at the club where he featured in 94 encounters scoring 24 goals, which includes 10 appearances and seven goals in the Champions League.
Tottenham reached the quarter-final stages of Europe’s elite competition in the 2010-11 season, where they were eventually knocked out by Real Madrid in a 5-0 aggregate defeat.
They will be hoping to go further this campaign and they have been drawn in a group, which will see them face CSKA Moscow, Bayer Leverkusen and Monaco.
