A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have commented on Jannik Vestergaard after the defender’s performance against Spurs for Southampton on Wednesday.
Tottenham came from behind to beat the Saints 2-1 in Ryan Mason’s first game in charge. The victory came after a much better display after the break from the home side.
Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men had put Spurs under plenty of pressure during the first-half. And one of their more impressive performers was arguably Vestergaard.
The 28-year-old will be disappointed with the goals the visitors conceded. But he did manage to catch the eye of some Spurs fans with his display.
As shown by Whoscored, he won three aerial duels and two tackles. He also sprayed a handful of superb long-range passes to his teammates.
Of course, Wednesday’s game may prove to have been something of an audition for the Dane. The Daily Express reported earlier this month that Spurs are interested in signing the £18 million-rated defender.
It must be noted that that report came out before Jose Mourinho’s departure. So it remains to be seen if he remains a target now that Mourinho has left.
Some Spurs fans would clearly likely to see him join the club. Others seem less convinced that he would be an upgrade on what they already have.
But there were a number who seemed impressed by what they saw as they watched yesterday’s game.
With that in mind, here is what some of the Tottenham fans were saying during and after the win over the Saints…
Vestergaard what a player! Would love to have him at spurs

Can we sign Vestergaard?

Vestergaard looks and plays just like Dier…I don’t see that much of a jump in class but I thought the Dane produced some ostentatious ball rolls that suggests he was trying to attract our attention.

Vestergaard has looked okay today, not dominant. Starting to learn towards Joachim Andersen for the summer.
Gotta get one startin’ quality centre-half for next term.
