Tottenham Hotspur fans have reminisced about former right winger Aaron Lennon on his birthday.
The former Spurs winger, who currently plays for Burnley, spent a total of ten years at White Hart Lane between 2005 and 2015 and played a key role in a number of milestones in the club’s history.
Lennon was a part of the team that won the League Cup in 2008 and was a key player under Harry Redknapp in the 2010-11 season as the club enjoyed a run to the Champions League quarter-finals, where they were ultimately beaten by Real Madrid. He laid on the assist for Peter Crouch to score in the 1-0 win over AC Milan at the San Siro.
An electric winger who sometimes lacked an end product, Lennon was highly thought of at Spurs and was given a rousing ovation when he returned to face the club with Everton, as a number of fans rose to their feet to applaud him.
And fans have again waxed lyrical about their former star on the day of his 32nd birthday on Tuesday. Take a look at the best of the reaction below!
Part of the squad when I first started watching football, love him ?
