Jan Vertonghen was an instrumental part of the Premier League’s best defence last season, and in an interview with Sky Sports the Belgian explained why Tottenham enjoy so much success at the back.

As part of Sky’s Premier League launch broadcast, Vertonghen spoke to David Jones and Gary Neville about keeping a high-line, particularly in set-piece situations, and Hugo Lloris’ preference for space when defending.

He also discussed Kieran Trippier’s attributes and claimed his teammate is the right-back with the best delivery in the Premier League.

Watching Vertonghen speak, I get the impression he’ll go into coaching when his playing days are over.
