Toby Alderweireld reacts on Twitter after winning Tottenham award, Spurs fans respond

Toby Alderweireld

Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld capped off a fine season with two awards.

Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld was named One Hotspur Members Player of the Season on Sunday, capping off a superb season.

The Belgian centre back, 27, impressed on loan at Southampton last season, and he has gone from strength to strength since signing for Premier League rivals Spurs on a permanent basis last summer.

Former Atletico Madrid and Ajax ace Alderweireld has been a rock in the heart of the Tottenham defence, rekindling his partnership with Belgium and former Ajax team-mate Jan Vertonghen to help lead the meanest back line in the Premier League.

Now considered to be the top centre back in the Premier League, Alderweireld has capped off a fine season by winning the One Hotspur Members Player of the Season award, which he was presented with on Sunday afternoon.

That award followed on from winning the Supporters Clubs Player of the Season, and Alderweireld took to Twitter to admit he was 'honoured' to win the award, before telling fans that he would try his best to help Spurs finish second in the Premier League this weekend against Newcastle United.


After that message, Spurs fans also took to Twitter in order to respond to Alderweireld, praising him for a brilliant season and highlighting his huge role in helping Spurs qualify for the Champions League - and it's quite the accolade for the centre back given that players like Mousa Dembele, Dele Alli and Harry Kane have all impressed so much under Mauricio Pochettino.
