Lewis Holtby posts Facebook picture from WHL, supporting Spurs v Benfica

At half-time of Tottenham’s Europa League first leg against Benfica, Lewis Holtby uploaded a picture from the stands at White Hart Lane where he is watching the match.

Holtby is a fans favourite for many at Spurs who have appreciated his desire on the pitch and commitment to the cause in all public appearances.

The fact Holtby scored for Fulham at Cardiff last week only added to his allure for Tottenham supporters who feel their side has not shown enough character this season.

Predictably, Holtby’s Facebook page was immediately littered with comments saying “you should be playing” and “we need you” after Tottenham’s poor first half performance versus Benfica.
