Tottenham fans delighted as Alderweireld returns to fitness

On Tuesday afternoon, Toby Alderweireld posted an image of himself in training for Tottenham Hotspur as the centre-back closes on a return to action.

Alderweireld has not represented Tottenham since picking up a hamstring injury during the club’s Champions League home game against Real Madrid on November 11.

The Belgium international declared himself fit and available last week, but he was not included in Tottenham’s FA Cup clash with Newport County at the weekend.

The 28-year-old will also not feature against Manchester United in the Premier League on Wednesday night as head coach Mauricio Pochettino takes a cautious approach.

Alderweireld will soon feature, however, and it would be fair to say that the Tottenham fans were delighted with the centre-back’s return to fitness.

The Belgian is yet to sign a new contract with Spurs – which is undoubtedly a concern – but he will be back to help the club in the final months of the campaign.

A selection of the Twitter reaction can be found below:
