Jan Vertonghen was in action for Tottenham Hotspur against Southampton on Wednesday.
Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Jan Vertonghen against Southampton on Wednesday evening.
Vertonghen was in action for Tottenham in their FA Cup fourth-round replay against Premier League rivals Southampton at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The Belgium international central defender started the match, but he was substituted in the 54th minute, as Jose Mourinho’s side won 3-2 to progress to the fifth round of the prestigious cup competition.
The 32-year-old did not have a good game on a personal level, as the defender looked very rusty and struggled defensively, and he was very disappointed when he was taken off.
The Belgian has not been playing well for Spurs this season, and is not guaranteed a place in Mourinho’s starting lineup.
So far this campaign, Vertonghen has scored one goal and provided one assist in 16 Premier League appearances for Spurs, and has played 253 minutes in the Champions League, according to WhoScored.
Tottenham fans were not impressed with the display produced by Vertonghen, and believe that he is done at the club.
Below are some of the best comments on Twitter:
I feel so bad for Vertonghen. You can tell that he knows that he is losing his form. So sad to watch him go from such a dominant force to this. #THFC— Adam Roark (@Adam_Roark) February 5, 2020
Vertonghen looks like a man who knows his time is up.— Brian Kenny (@THFC29) February 5, 2020
Age and injuries have just caught up with Vertonghen. Sad to see him become so unreliable… #thfc— Ali (@alimohddshahid) February 5, 2020
Eric Dier is a pathetic footballer! Another gutless performance this from spurs. Pathetic show. Can’t wait for the season to come to an end be a shame to see Vertonghen leave us end of the season to… he’s been a great player over the years!!!— Matty Richards (@matty96THFC) February 5, 2020
Vertonghen been one of the best defenders that has graced our shirt but sadly looks like he is done— Dan (@DanhTHFC) February 5, 2020
Vertonghen knows he’s done at this level. https://t.co/WsmooZbnrA— Max (@RossiterTHFC) February 5, 2020
Sad to see Vertonghen’s decline, but I’m more sad to see Spurs’ decline. Yes, we got a good win at the weekend but we look a shadow of the side of 18 months ago, and that’s being generous. We look and play like a midtable team. #COYS #THFC #TOTSOU— Dan Almond (@s17pur) February 5, 2020
Jan Vertonghen is one of the most consistent players I’ve seen at Spurs in my life and I could cry seeing it end like this— Chris Lane (@chrisjjlane) February 5, 2020
