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!
We love you Nando. Very best of the luck for the future and thank you for everything you have done and memories we will cherish. COYS ?
