Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to react after Youri Tielemans put in an excellent performance against them for Leicester, despite being on the receiving end of a 3-1 scoreline at Wembley on Sunday.
The young Belgian international was making his debut for the Foxes, having arrived on a loan deal from Monaco on deadline day for the remainder of the season.
Coincidentally, he was making his first appearance against a club who were also interested in his services in the January window in Spurs, although the 21-year-old eventually ended up at the King Power Stadium.
Be sure to check out the incredible story of the man who rose from a Tanzanian refugee camp to become one of Australia’s biggest football stars in the video below…
Tielemans completed 91.7% of his passes, completed two tackles and made two key passes as he was unlucky to be on the losing side against Mauricio Pochettino’s men.
Understandably, having been linked with him last month, Spurs supporters on Twitter were upset to see the former Anderlecht man perform so well after missing out on him…
Fuming Spurs didn't sign Tielemans

Youri Tielemans bossing the midfield in this #totlei game. A player rated not good enough for spurs in the recent transfer window. 🤔

Would have loved Tielemans at Spurs.

Spurs should have been signing Tielemans as they let Dembele go and are short in midfield 🙄

After watching him today, I’m gutted we never signed Tielemans. Thought he was outstanding for Leicester, their best player by a mile on his Premier League debut and only 21. He looks like he would’ve fit perfectly into our system in midfield. #THFC

Winks has been phenomenal, ref has been terrible, Tielemans looks really good, still don't understand why we didn't want to sign him. #COYS
