Tottenham Hotspur supporters bade their Romanian defender an overdue goodbye on Thursday evening...

Rarely have a set of fans been so unanimous in their verdict on the sale of a player.

Granted, not every Tottenham fan will have stuck the boot in after Vlad Chiriches' move to Napoli was confirmed on Thursday - but those that didn't were firmly in the minority.

Indeed, it is with nothing but regret that both Spurs and the Romanian will surely look back upon the defender's time at White Hart Lane. He slipped up here and fell over there and, within a couple of poor performances, the 25-year-old was out of the first-team picture in north London without any realistic possibility of a return.

In fairness, Chiriches was given plenty of chances, especially as injuries opened the door for him to prove himself last season. But the definitive game was really the 3-0 defeat to Stoke City, during which the Romanian was in the last-chance saloon but ended up getting unceremoniously sent off to cap off a poor display.

It's no surprise, then, that the majority of Tottenham fans were highly critical of Chiriches once his Napoli move was announced. Here's a selection of how Spurs supporters reacted on Twitter...
