Former Tottenham striker Peter Crouch has recalled the Spurs away end when Harry Redknapp’s side beat Manchester City to clinch Champions League football at the end of the 2009/2010 campaign – describing it as the most “mental” visiting stand that he’s ever witnessed.
The north Londoners arrived at the Etihad Stadium knowing that three points would secure a first ever top-four finish in the Premier – with the former Tottenham striker nodding home the crucial goal eight minutes from time after Younes Kaboul’s cross was parried into his path.
Unsurprisingly, the 3,000 or so travelling Spurs fans were going crazy behind the goal and Crouch admitted that he’s never seen anything like it before.
Speaking on BT Sport’s #WhatIWore, Crouchy explains everything.
"I've never seen an away stand go as mental as that day!"
OTD in 2010, @petercrouch secured Champions League football for Spurs 🙌
