Alderweireld takes to Twitter after suffering injury blow, fans react

Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld could be facing a spell on the sidelines after suffering a suspected hamstring injury during Wednesday night’s Champions League action.

It was a memorable night for the North London outfit as they outsmarted Real Madrid to earn a 3-1 triumph over Real Madrid at Wembley.

Dele Alli, who was ineligible to play in the first three group games due to a UEFA ban, was the hero as he scored twice to put Spurs in control.

Christian Eriksen wrapped up the win with a goal of his own, while Cristiano Ronaldo nabbed one as a consolation for Madrid.

There were smiles all round the Tottenham bench, but there was also a tinge of disappointment due to Alderweireld’s injury.

The Belgium international pulled up in the 24th minute following a quick sprint and was replaced with Moussa Sissoko.

The exact length of the defender’s absence is unknown, but the 28-year-old tried to stay positive when he took to Twitter after the match.

As expected, Tottenham fans were quick to respond.
