The Warm Up
Hi my name is Alassane – Club President Tottenham Senegal.
Here is a little bit of my journey……….
I started to support Tottenham since the 2008/09 season thanks to Gareth Bale. I like to see football played this way so I did research on the club – its history, its players, everything.
At that time, I could say that I was the only one to love Tottenham in my country where you rarely see a Spurs Fan.
I told myself, why not go looking for, discover or find the other supporters. I went to social networks only to find people laughing at me, joking with me, calling me names because I support Tottenham but I was never discouraged and I said to myself, why not create a Facebook group to find other fans.
I am now well established and I’m starting to see the fans sharing their stories about my project for the club. As time goes by, it’s getting bigger and we are starting to respect each other.
I have finally created allegiances, we better know each other and have become a family. Now we are everywhere in the whole region of the country. Even during the UCL Final I was invited to a radio station to talk about the club Tottenham Senegal and I organized a big meeting to watch the final. Now here, if you ask, who is the biggest supporter of Tottenham? People tell me thanks for my wonderful work.
I am now an official club and its does not prevent me from continuing my work and reaching my goal which is to be part of the best supporters club and one day my dream will be to attend a spurs match.
