Rodney Marsh has slammed Tottenham summer signing Vincent Janssen for being Championship standard.
The Dutchman was one of Spurs’ three principal captures this summer along with Victor Wanyama and Moussa Sissoko.
Former QPR and Manchester City forward Marsh is concerned at the lack of impact Janssen has made after arriving for £18million from AZ Alkmaar with an excellent goalscoring record in his native Holland.
Janssen is yet to score from open play for Tottenham in 17 matches, with all three of his goals to date coming from the penalty spot.
He maintained his dry run during a 30-minute run-out as a substitute in Spurs’ 1-1 draw against Arsenal on Sunday.
Marsh has suggested on his personal Twitter account that the Dutchman is not good enough for Tottenham, and that he would be a good signing for Championship club Brentford in the January transfer window.

Tottenham are unbeaten in their 11 Premier League matches this season but they have failed to record a victory in any of their last seven games in all competitions.
Sunday’s draw against Arsenal cements their fifth position in the table, where they lie five points behind new leaders Liverpool.
