Nacer Chadli thanks fans for support on Twitter after father's death

Tottenham Hotspur star Nacer Chadli has thanked fans on Twitter after his father tragically passed away.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Nacer Chadli has thanked fans via Twitter for the support they have shown him after the tragic death of his father.

Belgian news site SudInfo confirmed that the winger had returned home to Belgium following his father's death and he remarkably took time out to thank fans for their messages on the social media website.

Chadli has worked extremely hard to have an impact on the Tottenham Hotspur first team this season with some superb performances such as his display away at Arsenal in the North London derby where he helped his side to a point.

Tottenham should understandably give him as much time out of the game as he needs to grieve for his loss and he’s likely to enjoy tremendous support from the club’s fan base when he feels he’s ready to return to first team action.

The thoughts and prayers of Tottenham fans all over the world are with him.
