Jan Vertonghen has ‘liked’ a tweet from a fan arguing that Tottenham made a mistake letting him leave on a free last summer.

The tweet also claimed that Spurs were wrong to keep Eric Dier and Davinson Sanchez over the experienced Belgian centre-back.


This came after Vertonghen put in a sensational display against Portugal in the European Championships this week, helping his country to book a place in the quarter-finals. He also did so alongside former Spurs teammate Toby Alderweireld in a back three.

Vertonghen was a star in North London ever since he made the move from Ajax back in 2012 and he went on to make over 300 appearances across eight seasons for Spurs.

In that time, he was a permanent fixture in all the progress and success made at the club, including the Champions League Final and back-to-back seasons competing for the Premier League.

Spurs Web Opinion:

Vertonghen liking this tweet appears to hint that he wanted to stay at Spurs and still had more to give the club. I would have loved to see him carry on for another year or two, but I suppose it comes down to what contract demands were made.
