Tottenham Hotspur fans react as Vincent Janssen exit is confirmed

Tottenham Hotspur have sold the striker to Mexican side Monterrey.

Vincent Janssen has left Tottenham Hotspur. The club confirmed on their official website last night that the Dutchman had completed a surprise move to Mexican outfit Monterrey. 

As reported by Sky Sports, Tottenham spent £18.6 million on the Dutch international in the summer of 2016.  

It came after he had scored 32 goals in 49 games in the previous season with AZ Alkmaar. Tottenham had hoped he could be long-term competition and back-up to first-choice striker Harry Kane.

However, Janssen failed to live up to expectations during his time in London and he has now left on the cheap. 

As reported by Medio Tiempo, Monterrey have paid just $7 million (£5.6m) for the player. 

Janssen’s record at Spurs does not read well. He managed just six goals in his debut season with the club, most of which came from the penalty spot.

He then had a spell on loan at Fenerbahce before a serious foot injury had him spending a significant spell on the sidelines. 

But despite his troubles, Tottenham fans always had something of a soft spot for the Dutchman. Whilst he clearly struggled at the club, it was clear he was always ready to put in the effort to try and improve. 

Unfortunately, he never had the physical attributes needed to be a star in English football. 

Here is how some Tottenham fans have reacted to his impending departure…
