Vincent Janssen made his long-awaited return to action for Tottenham Hotspur when he came off the bench in the 80th minute of the Premier League match against Brighton at the new stadium last night.
The Dutchman appeared for the first time for Spurs in any competition since coming on as a 91-st minute sub against Chelsea in August 2017 which was a staggering 611 days ago.
Janssen was touched by the reception that he received from the supporters at the 62,062 capacity seater stadium who sung his name not long after he took to the field.
He took to Instagram to express his delight to be back and to thank the home fans. With West Ham United the next side to visit N17 this Saturday lunchtime, Janssen will be hoping for another opportunity to take to the field – who knows, he could have a similar transformation to that of Moussa Sissoko.
“If I’m Dunk and Duffy, when he gets in that dressing room, he’s going to know about it… What he's done is cost his team…"@IanWright0 cannot hide his frustration with the costly mistake made by Beram Kayal in the lead up to Tottenham’s winner.?? pic.twitter.com/qG56PDOIHH
