New Tottenham signing Vincent Janssen is so prolific that he has been compared to Ruud Van Nistelrooy due to a goals-to-game ratio that exceeds even that of Harry Kane.
The Spurs fans’ favourite top the Premier League goal charts with 25 strikes last season to follow his breakthrough 2014-15 campaign with an even more productive run of form.
Janssen was the top scorer in the Dutch League last season with a virtual goal-a-game haul of 27 goals in 34 games, a goal every 105 minutes compared to one every 135 for current talisman Kane.
Throughout Janssen’s career, in all appearances for club and country, he has scored 68 goals in 134 appearances which is a ratio of a goal 0.51 goals per game.
In all competitive matches for club and country, Kane has scored 85 goals in 208 games which is an average of 0.41 goals per game.
Janssen has been compared to Premier League legend Ruud van Nistelrooy, who scored 358 goals in his career over 579 games – an average of 0.62 goals per game.
Van Nistelrooy was feared throughout out the league and was key for Manchester United domestically and in Europe.
The opportunity was a major draw for Janssen, who said he hopes to scores lots of goals and has his eyes firmly fixed on silverware in his first season in North London.
Earlier, Spurs supporters took to Twitter to welcome Janssen to the club and were just pleased that the club now have a second senior striker which they hope will take the workload off Kane’s shoulders.
