Former Spurs striker Vincent Janssen has revealed that he has tested positive for COVID-19.

Tottenham sold the Dutch flop to the Mexican side, Monterrey who announced they had one positive result from the 50 tests carried out across their players and staff.

Janssen took to his social media accounts to announce that it was himself who had received the positive result from the tests which were carried out last Thursday.

“Firstly, I just want to say that I feel fine. My test result for COVID-19 was positive,” he said.

“I am at home taking care to be as soon as possible back with my team-mates. Thanks to everyone.”

The striker only made 42 appearances for Spurs over his three-year stint with the Lilywhites with one of those years spent on loan to the Turkish side, Fenerbache (Transfermarkt).

However, despite only scoring six goals across all competitions at Spurs, Janssen has netted 11 times for his new side and lifted his first career trophy in the shape of the 2019 Apertura title.

Yes, he may not have been any good at Spurs, however, I am sure we all wish the Dutchman a speedy recovery so he can get back on the pitch as soon as it is safely possible to do so.
