Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have been reminiscing about the time when Aaron Lennon played for them back in the days.
A Spurs-related page called ‘the Spurs Web’ recently posted a video of Lennon on Twitter. It had the former England international score some goals and had some of his best moments as a Tottenham player.
Lennon, who is valued at £2.7 million (as per Transfermarkt), had joined Spurs from Leeds United in the summer of 2005 for a fee of £1.08 million. During his time at the North London club, Lennon had made 364 appearances in all competitions. He had scored 30 goals and had notched up 77 assists, before leaving for Everton permanently in the summer of 2015. These numbers clearly show what Lennon had accomplished at Spurs.
On seeing this video, many Spurs fans were left nostalgic about how good Lennon was during his time at the club. Some still seemed in the dark about why he left. The fans’ comments, though, show that they appreciated him and they seem to remember how useful a player he was during his stay at the club.
Would you have Lennon back at Tottenham?
No, he's past him prime
I'd have him back!
On leaving the club, Lennon had said that he was left in the cold by Spurs. This shows that the exit wasn’t something that he would have liked, considering how much he had done for the club. Judging by the comments of some fans, they didn’t like the manner of the exit either.
Here are what just some of them thought…
One of my favourite players of all time at Spurs. And levy just spit him out like he was nothing in the end…. No wonder he ended up really struggling with his mental health. Cast aside by a club he gave so much too. #TheresOnlyOneAaronLennon

One of favourites in Premier league era.. Great servant and terrorised fullbacks on his day

Loved Aaron Lennon, whenever he played you knew something exciting could happen, remember the feelings in the ground when he got one on one with a full back “Go on Aaron”
