Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have responded to Graham Roberts’s post on Twitter about Mousa Dembele.

Former Tottenham defender Roberts has asked Spurs fans on Twitter if they think that the North London outfit would have won the Champions League last season if Dembele were at the club.

The 32-year-old midfielder joined Tottenham from Fulham in the summer of 2012 and was a key figure at the North London outfit over the years.


The Belgium international was a force to be reckoned with in the middle of the park, as Spurs established himself as regulars in the Champions League and challenged for the Premier League title.

However, Dembele had injury problems, and in January 2019, Tottenham sold the midfielder to Chinese club Guangzhou R&F for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £11 million.

Spurs reached the final of the Champions League last season, but they lost it to Premier League rivals Liverpool.

Roberts has asked on Twitter if Tottenham would have won the Champions League with Dembele in the team, and some Spurs have responded, as shown below:
