Tottenham fans react on Twitter after Vertonghen injury message

By Amir Mir

Jan Vertonghen has stated that he is “gutted” to be out injured for Tottenham – and fans on Twitter have wished the defender a speedy recovery.

The 29-year-old went off with an ankle injury during Spurs’ 4-0 win against West Brom at the weekend.

As a result of his injury, Belgian journalist Kristof Terreur claimed on his personal Twitter account that the highly-rated centre-back could be out until March.

Vertonghen has since posted a message to the White Hart Lane faithful thanking them for their support as posted on his personal Twitter account.

One fan jokingly stated that the injured defender could take his ankle in order to play and perform for Tottenham.

Another believes he will be a big miss to Mauricio Pochettino’s side as they aim to close the seven-point gap on leaders Chelsea in the Premier League table.

One supporter was hoping that Vertonghen can recover and come back in time to help his team lift a cup.

The Belgian has partnered Toby Alderweireld at the heart of the club’s defence this season and one fan believes Vertonghen has been a rock during that time.

Overall, the Spurs supporters were gutted to see Vertonghen out of action as they wished him a speedy and successful recovery.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Vertonghen has helped Pochettino’s record some valuable points this season against the likes of Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester City and Chelsea – the latter two were victories at home.
