Fernando Llorente was the Tottenham Hotspur hero against Manchester City on Wednesday evening and Spurs fans want him to stay at the club!
The Spanish striker, off the bench to replace the injured Moussa Sissoko, scored the decisive goal to send Spurs into their first Champions League semi-final in a generation.
In a crazy game that saw five goals in the first 21 minutes, Spurs thought they were heading out when Sergio Aguero made it 4-2 on the night.
However, with a patched-up midfield and the 33-year-old up front, Spurs somehow rallied, with Llorente diverting a corner past Ederson in the City goal.
The ball appeared to strike his elbow but a VAR review allowed the goal to stand.
More drama was to come, with Spurs seemingly knocked out in injury time as Raheem Sterling looked to have completed his hat-trick.
However, another VAR review saw the goal ruled out for an offside in the build-up.
Llorente, whose contract expires at the end of the season, was subsequently the hero of the encounter, with Spurs now set to play Dutch giants Ajax in the last four.
And fans hope he is given a new deal this summer. Take a look at the best of the reaction below!

So uhh, I kinda want Llorente to extend his stay at Spurs. Not just based off of tonight either, he’s been great all season and scored crucial goals.
Full disclosure, I never thought I’d be tweeting this in a million years at the beginning of the season.

I feel like I’m in the minority but Llorente can stay at the club as long as he wants he’s genuinely such a hero

Give Llorente another contract in the summer too btw. Contributed way more than I ever expected and happy to sit on the bench most the time.
