Alderweireld posts emotional Twitter message after Tottenham win v Man United
By Danny Wright
Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld has taken to Twitter to post an emotional farewell to White Hart Lane.
Spurs played their final game at their historic ground on Sunday as demolition work begins on it to pave way for a new state-of-the-art facility.
Victor Wanyama and Harry Kane scored in a 2-1 win over Manchester United in what was a fitting way to end over a century’s worth of football at The Lane.
Alderweireld, 28, was one of many to post messages on social media after the match and the Belgian international has delivered a simple tribute to the old ground.
“It was an honour to play here. Goodbye White Hart Lane,” said the centre-back on Monday on his personal Twitter account.

The former Southampton and Atletico Madrid player has been a key part in Mauricio Pochettino’s squad this season, which cemented their Premier League runners-up spot against Man United.
The 67-times Belgium international has made 37 appearances in all competitions for Tottenham this term, scoring one goal which came in the defeat to Monaco during the Champions League group stages.
Wembley has hosted all of Spurs’ European games this season and will be the temporary home of the North London club in all of their fixtures until their new stadium is built.
Tottenham won just one of their four matches at the England national stadium this term and will have to do a lot of work in order to improve on that in the near future.
