10th May - Spurs in History

Gary Mabbutt - a Spurs 'Legend' played his last game for Spurs
10th May, 1998

Time to Say Farewell

Spurs 1 Southampton 1

Job completed, Spurs said farewell to Jurgen Klinsmann for the second time in three seasons. This second period had not brought the same success as previously but he had scored six goals in Spurs final three games of the season which had helped ensure Premiership survival.

He signed off from White Hart Lane by scoring Spurs' equaliser.

Also leaving Tottenham that day were Gary Mabbutt who played his final ten minutes for Spurs and David Howells who had served Spurs loyally over many seasons.
Also on this day:
'Nayim from the Half-way line'
On 10th May, 1995, a former player became immortalised in Spurs folklore with his winning goal in the last minute of extra time for Real Zaragossa in the European Cup Winners’ Cup Final against Arsenal – it was, ‘Nayim from the halfway line.’
