Tottenham Hotspur: Fans slam Jan Vertonghen after Middlesbrough performance

It was a disappointing result for Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup on Sunday, as they drew their third round tie against Championship outfit Middlesbrough 1-1.

Does Jan Vertonghen deserve a new deal?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Jose Mourinho fielded a very strong line-up at the Riverside (BBC Sport) but they struggled against their second-tier opponents, with Lucas Moura’s goal ensuring a replay after Ashley Fletcher had opened the scoring.

Plenty of Spurs players were off-colour in Teeside given the result, but one who came in for specific criticism on social media was centre-back Jan Vertonghen.

Indeed the Belgian wasn’t at his best as he lost possession 19 times in the game, whilst also making one error which led to a shot and having a low pass completion percentage of just 78% (SofaScore).

He is out of contract at the end of the season (Transfermarkt) and performances like this seemingly do little to suggest to fans that he’s worthy of a new one.

Plenty of Tottenham fans were not happy with his display against Middlesbrough and were very critical of him on Twitter.

Here is what some had to say…
