Spurs fans hail Fernando Llorente after farewell message

Premiership Picks

Tottenham Hotspur fans have hailed Fernando Llorente after he wished the club’s fans farewell on Twitter.

The Spaniard has completed a move to Napoli following the expiration of his contract at Spurs.

Indeed, Llorente enjoyed an exceptional season in 2018/19, particularly in the Champions League.

The former Swansea City striker scored the winning goal, via his hip, in the quarter-final against Manchester City and played a key role in the semi-final defeat of Ajax.

He wrote on Twitter: “After two wonderful seasons, today I say goodbye to Tottenham. It was a pleasure to wear this shirt and wherever I go there will be always a space in my heart for Tottenham and for their fans. I wish you all the best for this season and for the future! Thanks. #COYS.”

In total, he scored eight goals in all competitions last season and was largely content with playing back-up to first-choice Harry Kane.

Spurs failed to buy a striker to replace Llorente and currently have just the England captain as their out-and-out striking options, though teenager Troy Parrott could make a breakthrough this season.

And fans have inundated the 34-year-old with messages of goodwill as he embarks on the next chapter of his career.

Take a look at the best of the reaction on Twitter below!
