Tottenham fans on Twitter look back at Mabbutt on his birthday

Tottenham fans on Twitter have been scouring their club’s account for updates ahead of their huge Monday Night Football clash with Manchester United at Old Trafford. However, the Lillywhites instead stumbled upon a post from their club wishing former captain Gary Mabbutt a happy birthday.

Mabbutt is a club legend at Tottenham if ever there was one. The centre-back was a Spurs player for 16 years and was club captain for 11 of those. His years at the club between 1982 and 1998 are iconic with Tottenham fans as the legendary figure lifted the UEFA Cup in 1984 and the FA Cup in 1991. The 57-year-old was Tottenham through and through and the club could do with having someone of his calibre at the back today.

In March 2005, Mabbutt was made the 15th member of Tottenham Hotspur’s hall of fame for his services to the club as a first team player and as the club captain. He also won the accolade of the club’s player of the year in 1987 and when you ask any Tottenham fan to name some of their club legends, Mabbutt will always be one of the first names on their list.

The fans all love Mabbutt and will be hoping to see him at the new stadium when it opens this season.
