Tottenham central defender Jan Vertonghen has received a scan on the ankle injury picked up in Sunday’s 4-0 loss at Liverpool and it’s either good or bad news, depending on your current opinion of the Belgian international.

Vertonghen was withdrawn from the game shortly before the second goal and while he is expected to miss next Monday’s match with Sunderland, the centre back is due to return before the end of the season and should play a full part in Belgian’s World Cup campaign.

Jan’s demeanour has been Adebayor-esque at it’s very worst so is the news of his absence that much of a concern? Maybe it is if two right sided players fill the centre half positions but with Vlad Chiriches close to full fitness, Spurs have a ready made option who may well prove to be in better form and in a better frame of mind.




  1. Of course he will be available and play a “full part” in the Belgian World Cup campaign and I bet you anything you like, he won’t be slouching against the wall of the tunnel with his hands behind his back mentally thinking “I don’t want to be here” either.

  2. I’d rather pick a youth player than this over rated fat head. Who does he think he is ? I seriously wouldn’t play him again this season, even if he somehow recovers from his broken toenail. This is his excuse for not playing another game for us. Please find some other mug club to take him off our hands.

  3. I have always blamed the players and not the manager but in this case Sherwood must take all of the blame.Weeks ago I said as long as we keep playing Rose,Naughton and Bentaleb we will finish no higher than 7th. Ask Ronaldo if he would like to play every week with these “kids”,they are NOT P.L class……..and you want to put all the blame on the pro players. I know I would not want to make a fool of myself in Tim;s team.
