Jan Vertonghen can play until he is 40, says Mauricio Pochettino
Feb 25, 2018, 00:15
He has a clause in his contract which can see him extend his stay with Spurs for one year, but it also has another clause that will see him leave the club for £25.4m ($35.5m) 14 days before the transfer window.
Mauricio Pochettino has been speaking to the media at his pre-match press conference this afternoon and he's provided a team news and injury update ahead of the game.
"Now I think he's a complete centre-back".
Vertonghen may be a natural athlete but Pochettino had major misgivings about his desire to win games - the "mental aspect" he mentioned.
"We worked a lot on this aspect and yes, it is true that we clash a lot in training because he is clever and always has an argument and a reason why, but in the end I appreciate his efforts". "In my opinion, he's one of the best centre-backs in the Premier League and in Europe", he said. "He's one of the important players in the side". He has unbelievable quality, physical condition, technique.
And Spurs boss Pochettino believes Vertonghen has come a long way since being slated for his poor body language during a 4-0 defeat by Liverpool in March 2014 - shortly before the Argentine took over as manager.
