Jan Vertonghen’s changing attitude at Tottenham

Jan Vertonghen’s changing attitude at Tottenham 14

Praising Mauricio Pochettino is becoming very trendy, but given how Tottenham are performing at the moment it’s not unreasonable.  The Argentine hasn’t quite imparted his tactical message on his new side, but quite obviously his arrival has coincided with the development of some much needed character within the squad. Spurs are becoming pleasingly stubborn; physically(…)

Player to watch in 2014/15: Jan Vertonghen (Tottenham) 1

Before the turn of the year, Jan Vertonghen had started to make ominous noises about his future and had reverted into the type of ambiguous phraseology players tend to use when their heads have been turned.  The Belgian’s performances certainly seemed to suggest that his mind was elsewhere, with the second half of his season(…)

Time for Tottenham to send Jan Vertonghen packing 20

Here’s Jan Vertonghen’s agent doing what we’ve come to expect from his and his player: “Several teams are interested in Jan.

Tottenham’s Jan Vertonghen and his link with Liverpool 5

There was a story around over the weekend about Liverpool supposedly being interested in Tottenham’s Belgian defender Jan Vertonghen - and a couple of papers have parroted that story this morning. Originally, this came from Rob Shepherd’s column in The Mail and that’s not terribly promising for Liverpool fans. Shepherd’s articles are, almost every week,(…)

Tottenham’s Jan Vertonghen and the red card incident last night 17

Jan Vertonghen’s reaction to Roman Zozulya’s head-butt at White Hart Lane last night wasn’t the best moment of the Belgian’s career. Even though we’re used to seeing that kind of overreaction, it still makes you cringe to see a physical centre-half collapse to the floor so willingly. It’s a complicated situation, though, and this type(…)
