Watch: Spurs star Jan Vertonghen embarrasses Josh Onomah in training with brilliant skill

Tottenham WHL

Tottenham Hotspur have been training ahead of their match against Monaco in the Europa League on Thursday evening.

Tottenham Hotspur defender Jan Vertonghen has shown no mercy towards youngster Josh Onomah in pre-match training for the side's game against Monaco, after embarrassing him with a brilliant bit of skill.

Vertonghen slid the ball between Onomah's legs, leaving the youngster standing, and he was all too happy to post the video on social media to let the world know about his piece of skill.

The Belgian defender uploaded a video to Instagram, and also jokingly messaged Onomah on Twitter, just to make sure the academy graduate wouldn't forget about the incident. 

Vertonghen performed the nutmeg during a light-hearted Spurs training session, ahead of their fixture against Monaco in the Europa League on Thursday evening.

Spurs have travelled to France to face off against the Ligue 1 side in good spirits following a 4-1 victory over Manchester City in their most recent fixture. 

The Lilywhites won their first match in the Europa League 3-1 against Qarabag, and they will be hoping to build on that result against much tougher opponents.

It is unknown whether Vertonghen or Onomah will start in the fixture at this stage, but Mauricio Pochettino has hinted that he won't make too many changes to Tottenham's line-up in FourFourTwo
