Tottenham’s Jan Vertonghen has quickly become a fans’ favourite at White Hart Lane and at the end of this campaign, the Belgian international should really be seen as one of the signings of the season. He’s also notched a couple of important goals and has covered expertly at left back – with little or nothing in the way of complaint.
At this stage of the season, Super Jan reflected on his first few months as a Premiership player and he insisted that he can get even better.
“I wanted to be ready when I came to the Premier League and I felt ready when I came to Tottenham,” said Jan on the club’s official website.
“I think I’ve done okay, but you haven’t seen my best yet. I think I can improve.”
Overall however, Jan was happy with his first six months at the Lane and thanked the fans for their support.
“I’m happy with my first six months, played a lot of games, feel the confidence of the players, staff and supporters as well,” he added.
“After six months, I think I can be happy with my performances. The fans have been very supportive, I love them as well!”
With just under half the season to go, Jan Vertonghen has certainly been our signing of the campaign so far and could certainly be a worthy contender for player of the year, come the end of May.
