Some Spurs fans speculate that two Spurs stars have been in a punch up

Tottenham Hotspur haven’t got off to the best start so far this season, with a loss to Newcastle United at home standing out as the worst performance.

Spurs also grabbed a point away to Man City, but were extremely lucky to do so, and managed to come up with a late flurry to beat Aston Villa on opening day after finding themselves behind in the first half.

It has been far from the free-flowing, energetic, and physical performances we associate with a Mauricio Pochettino Tottenham side over the past five years.

The Argentine has decided to mix things up a bit at the start of this season, dropping first-team stars such as Christian Eriksen and Jan Vertonghen to the bench on multiple occasions.

Vertonghen and Alderweireld have partnered each other in the heart of the Spurs defence for years now, but Toby has been given a new partner in Davinson Sanchez in recent weeks.

Rumours are now spreading online that Vertonghen has allegedly been involved in a training ground disagreement after he appeared with a black eye at the weekend.

Twitter is certainly in overdrive with rumours.

This is purely speculation rather than a claim and is not presented as fact. Any speculation regarding the rumour is guesswork from fans.


Those who have played football will admit that an altercation on the training pitch between two players is nothing new and is something which happens every season. If this has been the case at Hotspur Way, it should not be read into as a serious matter.

Veronghen for whatever reason is currently out of the side and must prove himself to Pochettino that he should be back in the starting eleven.
