Toby takes over Instagram for #ThrowbackThursday

Posted on 11 February 2016  - 16:02

Toby Alderweireld staged a special #ThrowbackThursday takeover on our @SpursOfficial Instagram account earlier today where he shared some of his favourite pictures of his career to date.


From images of a young Toby playing football with his younger brother to international action in Belgium’s colours and goal celebrations from his time here at Spurs, the central defender posted a series of photos for our followers on @SpursOfficial and explained the background to each one.

Here’s a recap of the pictures he shared…


This is one of the earliest pictures I have of me (left) playing football with my younger brother / best friend in 1999! #ThrowbackThursday


This picture was taken a year later in 2000 when I was playing for Germinal Beerschot Youth where I started my career! #ThrowbackThursday


This is another special picture for me from when I made my debut in professional football for @afcajax against @inter in the Amsterdam Tournament! #ThrowbackThursday


This is another good one from my last season at @afcajax when we won the Championship, my third league title in a row! #ThrowbackThursday


I had to share this picture with you all. Playing at a World Cup representing your country against the best players in the's a boy's dream! #ThrowbackThursday


Signing for Spurs was a great moment for me and my debut against @manchesterunited was equally special, even if the game didn't quite go to plan for us. #ThrowbackThursday


What a game this was and such a great moment for me to score my first Spurs goal! Hopefully more of the same this weekend for us! #ThrowbackThursday


I'm going to finish with this picture, one of my favourite moments of the season after @hm_son7's goal at Watford. The celebrations were incredible and it was great to share the moment with all of the fans! #ThrowbackThursday


I've been @tobyalderweireld, you've been brilliant, see you on Sunday! Over and out. #ThrowbackThursday
