Mauricio Pochettino provides update on Vincent Janssen’s future at Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has spoken on the future of out-of-favour striker Vincent Janssen ahead of the summer transfer window.

The Dutch star was signed by Mauricio Pochettino in the summer of 2016 and he was expected to be the man to take the pressure off Harry Kane upfront.

Janssen did get a few chances to impress the boss during his debut season but he simply was not able to adapt to the playing style of English football.

With other players waiting in line to get into the starting eleven, the striker was dropped and subsequently sent out on various loan spells.

Janssen has returned to the club and he was given a very scarce chance to play on Tuesday as Spurs defeated Brighton in the Premier League.

Rumours have remained over whether the Dutchman will be offloaded this summer and the manager has attempted to address that.

Pochettino told Football.London when asked if there is a chance for the forward to play:

“Maybe, I think [against City] was the first time on the bench as part of the team, We’ll see if he has a chance to play a little bit in the future.”
