Tottenham Hotspur legend Micky Hazard brought one of Europe’s most coveted football trophies when he visited Barnet Hospital this week.

The former Spurs midfielder gave staff and patients a chance to get up close to the current Europa League cup when he dropped in on the Galaxy Ward and Chemotherapy Lounge earlier this month.

Hazard was a winner of the then UEFA Cup with Spurs in 1984 and provided the crosses for goals in both legs of the final, which Tottenham went on to win in a penalty shoot-out.

The Europa League trophy is currently on a tour of the regions where teams are still competing in the competition.

Tottenham face Benfica in the second leg of their last-16 tie on Thursday, making north London one of the stops for the famous cup.

Hazard later tweeted: “Just been to Barnet Hospital visiting the kids and cancer unit with the UEFA Cup. Very humbling experience, such brave children.”
