It was truly the end of an era at Tottenham when the club announced the departure of Toby Alderweireld on Tuesday.
The 32-year-old made up one half of arguably the club’s strongest centre-back pairing in modern history, playing alongside compatriot and former Ajax team-mate Jan Vertonghen for the majority of his stint in north London.
Quite fittingly, Alderweireld’s departure came a year to the day after Vertonghen was let go by the club, who is now playing is football at Benfica in Portugal.
