Many Tottenham Hotspur fans blasted Jan Vertonghen after their side were thrashed 7-2 by Bayern Munich in the Champions League last night.
Will this be Mauricio Pochettino's last season at Tottenham?
The Belgian defender completed 90 minutes of what was the club’s heaviest-ever defeat at home in all competitions (via The Telegraph).
Vertonghen came out after the game and apologised to the north London faithful, assuring the fans they have the players to ‘overcome the situation’, with quotes sourced by the Daily Mail.
The Belgium international hasn’t enjoyed the best of seasons with Spurs, initially being left out of the squad for the first three Premier League fixtures (via Transfermarkt).
There were even rumours that manager Mauricio Pochettino was thinking twice about offering him a new contract with his current deal due to expire at the end of the season (via Football Insider).
However, reports from the Daily Mail now claim that the club has opened talks with the player over a new deal.
Despite talks over a new contract, some fans were less than thrilled with the centre-back as they took to Twitter to blast Vertonghen after his interview.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Spurs fans:
And he wants a new contract?

Bit late now. Heard this 100 times over.

He’s 32 bro, this club needs to be more ruthless. Get a young hungry defender. He’s past it.

I swear to god… if we offer this guy another contract…
I’m glad that he cares and genuinely seems like a great person, but he’s just past it. He needs to go. It’s time to say goodbye to this group.
