Mauricio Pochettino’s latest comments about Vincent Janssen to Football.London are surely brilliant news for the Tottenham Hotspur striker.

Janssen has endured a difficult first season at Tottenham, after signing from AZ Alkmaar last summer.

The 22-year-old striker has had some difficult adapting to the English game, and his future at White Hart Lane was questioned only weeks ago.

However, in Tottenham’s last two matches, Janssen has begun to prove his worth for Pochettino’s side.

The target-man impressed when given a starting role against Burnley last weekend, and he helped inspire Spurs to a comeback after being introduced as a substitute yesterday.

Tottenham were trailing 1-0 against Swansea City last night, but Janssen’s introduction gave Pochettino’s side a focal point in attack.

As soon as the Dutch international entered the field the Lilywhites looked a greater attacking threat, and the London side ended up turning the game on its head.

Tottenham scored three goals in the final stages to seal out a victory, with Janssen having a hand in all three strikes.

And Pochettino raved about the powerful forward after the match. He said: “He is a different type of player who is very important. We signed him because of what he can bring to the team and the different characteristics he has. It is true that it is a different type of offensive player.”

Pochettino’s comments would suggest that he does indeed see a future for Janssen at Spurs, and the striker could now have a big role to play between now and the end of the campaign.
