Vertonghen: I hope it makes us stronger


Jan Vertonghen says Tottenham will dust themselves down following their Europa League exit and focus on a top-four finish.

The Belgian defender has been arguably our player of the season when you take Gareth Bale out of the equation and wants to finish the season on a high.

We now sit fifth in the table, with Chelsea in fourth and Arsenal third, although we are only one point behind our north London rivals with six games remaining.

“We have to stay together and to go for that top four place in the Premier League,” he told Tottenham’s official website.

“We have had a rest, we clear our heads and we come back against Manchester City [on Sunday].

“A lot of players could be coming back, important players and we only have big games now, City, Chelsea, all cup finals. We go for the highest place possible.”

“I hope it makes us stronger,” the 25-year-old added.

“You could see there was a team together on the pitch, we really fought for each other for 120 minutes.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. History proves it will not make us stronger but make us feel sorry for ourselves and limp to the end of the season in 5th. It's all repetitive and depressing. If we can't beat Fulham, Basle and Everton at home – do we really think we'll beat Man City on Sunday? We're begging for Bale to comeback and cursing our luck for his injury… He's missed ONE game! Seriously, is that all we are?

  2. After watching arsenals 12 th man running the line against Norwich, getting all the important decisions wrong, but in arsenals favour, gifting them with 3 points we most certainly need to dust our selves down to knick our place back.gonna be hard, but we can do it.
