Tottenham forward Vincent Janssen has revealed he is not “satisfied” with the amount of minutes he has had this season.
The 22-year-old completed a move to White Hart Lane and has endured a difficult first season in English football.
He has made 31 first team appearances for Spurs this campaign, but has mainly been used as a substitute by boss Mauricio Pochettino.
The Holland international has been constantly over looked by his manager for a starting role and completed 90 minutes on just four occasions this campaign.
Janssen, who is currently away on international duty, has explained he is trying to remain positive despite hi
“Of course I’m not satisfied with the amount of playing time in recent months,” Janssen told Dutch outlet Voetbal International. “But I remain positive.
“Moreover, things are going very well at Tottenham Hotspur. I’m not going to walk around as the only player whining. That makes no sense.”
Janssen was expected to provide tough competition for Harry Kane in the side, but has been unable to recreate his best form in the Premier League.
The striker was in prolific form for Dutch outfit AZ ALkmaar last season, scoring 32 goals in just 49 appearances.
However, he has managed just five Spurs goals so far and four of them have come from the penalty spot.
Janssen will be hoping he can ignite his season with some strong performances for Holland and play an important role in the club’s pursuit of the top four.
