Mauricio Pochettino has bluntly responded to a question regarding Vincent Janssen’s future at Tottenham Hotspur.

The question was posed to the Spurs boss during the pre-match press conference ahead of tomorrow night’s Champions League clash against PSV Eindhoven.

Janssen, who joined Spurs from another Dutch side AZ Alkmaar has failed to make the grade in England since his move and was shipped off to Fenerbahce on loan last season.

A foot injury scuppered any hope of the forward who has international 17 caps to his name departing Spurs during the summer and Pochettino has made it abundantly clear that he is not part of his plans going forward.

It remains to be seen if the 24-year-old will depart the club in the January transfer window.

Pochettino told Football.London: “I think we are going to play in the Champions League and it’s clear the situation of Vincent. I don’t think it’s a moment to talk about him. We’ve talked a lot already.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Hopefully – It was Poch’s intent to end the career of some amateur journalist who was foolish enough to ask such an inane question.

  2. ‘Inane question’? Spurs are playing in Holland for the first time since Pochettino signed Janssen (and if he’s the manager, he must have had some say in the transfer), so what’s so strange about asking why the Golden Boy of Dutch football two years ago is now a non-person at Spurs? Clearly Janssen isn’t good enough for Spurs, but it was Pochettino’s mistake (like N’Jie, N’Koudu and a few others), and treating him like a leper isn’t going to get this seventeen million pound misfit off the books any time soon – Pochettino should try acting more like an adult and less like a spoilt brat when he’s got it wrong.
