Paulo Gazzaniga has said his farewell to the Tottenham Hotspur fans following the announcement of his exit from the club.
It was announced this week that the 29-year-old goalkeeper, along with long-serving 30-year-old left-back Danny Rose, would be leaving Spurs following the conclusion of his contract.
Gazzaniga joined Tottenham from Southampton in 2017 and made 37 appearances for the club in all competitions, during which time he made his international debut for Argentina.
He found himself pushed into third place in the goalkeeper pecking order this season with the arrival of former England stopper Joe Hart last summer and was unable to get any game time for the north London outfit under Jose Mourinho during the campaign.
The Argentine was loaned out by Tottenham to Spanish side Elche in January and he was initially unable to break into their team.
However, he did manage to do just that when it mattered the most, making eight consecutive La Liga appearances in the final weeks of the season as his loan club escaped relegation on the last day of the campaign in dramatic circumstances.
Now Gazzaniga is without a club and he said his goodbyes to the Spurs supporters on social media on Saturday afternoon, alongside a photo of him smiling in front of the fans at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
“Dear Spurs fans: I haven’t had the time to say goodbye to all of you at N17, but just wanted to say thank you for all your support during these four years I had the pleasure to wear the shirt of this great club,” he said.
“It has been an amazing journey full of unbelievable memories. I have learned a lot from teammates, staff, friends, and fans at Tottenham… To all of you: THANK YOU! All the best and hope to see you again. Paulo #COYS.”
As a free agent this summer it is not expected to be long before Gazzaniga is snapped up by a new club.
