Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Janssen axe v West Brom

By Harvey Byrne

Striker Vincent Janssen was axed from Tottenham’s 18-man matchday squad against West Brom on Saturday – and fans on Twitter believe it was the correct decision.

The 22-year-old striker played an hour in Spurs’ last encounter against Aston Villa in the FA Cup.

However, he struggled before coming off for Dele Alli in the 2-0 victory having also failed to score from open play in his first 23 appearances for the club.

Spurs fans on social media appear to have finally given up on the player, with many supporting the decision to leave him out of the team.

Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Janssen was brought to north London in the summer from Eredivisie side AZ Alkmaar in a £17million deal.

He joined as a Holland international with an impressive scoring record of 32 goals in 49 appearances for AZ in all competitions and he was expected to challenge Harry Kane for the forward role.

However, he failed to establish himself in the team when Kane suffered a long-term ankle injury in the campaign and he has since rarely featured in the league.

Fans will still be hoping Janssen can fulfil his early promise, but it doesn’t look too great for the player at the moment.
