Tottenham Hotspur evoked a strong sense of emotion in their fans this morning.

The North Londoners are gearing up to face Liverpool in tonight's Champions League final in Madrid.

In preparation, Spurs' Twitter account uploaded a video of Mousa Dembele sending a heartfelt message to the club's supporters.

In it, Dembele, who moved to China in January, expressed his disappointment that he was no longer with Tottenham and told supporters that they deserved the feeling of winning the trophy.

 

The Belgium international was a hugely popular figure among Lilywhites fans during his six-and-a-half year spell in North London.

And here's how many of them reacted to seeing his pre-match message.

Should Tottenham win, it would be their first trophy since Mauricio Pochettino took charge of the club in 2014 - and perhaps their greatest ever success in terms of silverware.

Likewise, Liverpool are also yet to end their trophy drought under Jurgen Klopp, who has lost three finals since taking the reins at Anfield in October of 2015.
