'Getting scared now' – Tottenham fans react to latest Alderweireld Twitter message
Toby Alderweireld posted a Twitter message to his fans on Friday afternoon, saying he was happy to be back with the national team.
Belgium play Saudi Arabia on Tuesday night and Alderweireld’s message follows on from comments from manager Roberto Martinez who said that the centre-back is completely fit and ready to play.
That might come as a bit of a shock to Tottenham fans, who haven’t seen their enforcer in the Premier League since October.
He did make two appearances in the FA Cup in 2018, against Newport and Rochdale, but his club manager Mauricio Pochettino said that he needed to be brought back into action carefully after suffering a reaction.
Alderweireld posted his message to his official Twitter page on Friday:
