Vincent Janssen has expressed his delight after returning to the Tottenham Hotspur first-team picture against Brighton and Hove Albion on Tuesday night.

The striker came on for the final 10 minutes plus stoppage time as Spurs secured a crucial 1-0 victory at their new stadium thanks to Christian Eriksen’s late winner.

The Tottenham supporters appeared happy to see Janssen as he waited on the sidelines before entering the fray, none more so than Eric Dier.

And while the Dutchman didn’t have too many touches, he did produce a brilliant tackle to prevent a Brighton counter attack in the final moments of the game.

The following day, Janssen posted a message to Spurs fans on Instagram, thanking them for their support after a tough couple of seasons.

He wrote: “So happy to be back, thanks to all the fans for the amazing support! #nevergiveup #coys.”

Janssen spent last season on loan at Fenerbahce but failed to seal a return to the Turkish club for the current campaign, leaving him in limbo at Tottenham.

A foot injury didn’t help matters, but the 24-year-old is now fully fit and ready to play a part for Spurs during the run-in.

There is even a chance Janssen could start against West Ham United on Saturday – do you think he should? Let us know in the comments section below.



  1. Janssen is a journeyman striker but sits low on Tottenham’s pecking order. We have Son, Dele, Moura, Llorente and quite possibly Lamela fit & available. Janssen may get another late cameo so that other EPL ans Championship teams can see that he is available and could help them next year. There would be no point to starting him against West Ham.

  2. I think we have treated him harshly and haven’t really given him a chance I think giving him 90 min against West Ham would be a great chance for him to pay back some of his transfer fee

  3. We may well need him big time against Ajax, we have no Son….. Give him game time against the spammers he does offer more than Llorente and he is hungry!
