Toby Alderweireld sends special message to Ajax after win over City
Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld is relishing the chance to face his former side Ajax Amsterdam in the semifinals of the Champions League and has sent them a special message as the teams prepare for the showdown.
Tottenham progressed to the semis despite losing 4-3 away to Manchester City, qualifying courtesy of the away goal rule after winning 1-0 in London during the first leg of their tie.
Toby is one of Tottenham's three players to have passed through the ranks at Ajax before moving to Spurs, and he had a special message for his next opponents.
Jan Vertonghen and Christian Eriksen are the other two players to have worn the famous red and white jersey and helped the Amsterdam-based side lift numerous titles.
Ajax have achieved what they were not able to with the three players, reaching the semifinals of the Champions League for the first time since 1997.
Their run has been the highlight of this season's competition and shocked many when they knocked out defending champions Real Madrid in the knockout stage before tossing Juventus out in the quarters.
