It’s common knowledge that Mousa Dembele is one of the most respected footballers currently playing in the Premier League.
Just about all of his Tottenham teammates will tell you the Belgian is the best footballer they’ve played alongside, and players from other teams regularly name Dembele when asked about their most feared opponents.
His countryman Jan Vertonghen has been particularly eager to pile praise on Dembele in the past, and the defender went one step further on World Animal Day.
Vertonghen marked the occasion by tweeting a picture of Dembele with the hashtag #goat – which stands for ‘greatest of all time’.
