Tottenham legend Ossie Ardiles has stated that the club is about “togetherness” as he compared the current crop to the one that won the FA Cup in 1981.
Former midfielder Ardiles lifted one of England’s most prestigious prizes over 35 years ago with the current side now in the semi-final of the very same competition.
Managed by his fellow Argentinan counterpart, Mauricio Pochettino, he helped the club secure an emphatic 6-0 win against League One outfit Millwall at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon.
Son Heung-Min was the star of the show as he scored a hat-trick during the match with Ardiles proud of his former side’s performance.
“This is what our club is about. Togetherness,” Ardiles wrote on his personal Twitter account. “We were like this 35 years ago. It is the same now.”
This is what our club is about. Toghertnes. We were like this 35 years ago. It is the same now. Wonderful to see. COYS https://t.co/3sWfdy9YgK

Pochettino’s side have been one of the best footballing sides in the country since the last campaign and he will be hoping to top it off with a trophy this term.
They finished third last season as they secured an impressive Champions League spot ahead of the likes of Liverpool and Manchester United.
The north London club are currently in second place and once again they are on course to go one better than the previous campaign.
More than likely for the White Hart Lane outfit, winning the Premier League title is out of the picture because Chelsea currently lead the table by ten points.
However, winning the FA Cup is a real possibility with Spurs only two wins away from the famous trophy.
Arsenal and Manchester City are two of the other teams currently in the hat with either Chelsea or Manchester United set to join them on Monday night.
