Scott Parker describes Jan Vertonghen as a 'Rolls Royce' of a player.

Jan's the man - Scott

The Belgium international has been so impressive in his first season at Spurs - recognised by his selection in the PFA's Premier League Team of the Year on Sunday night.

Playing centre-back or left-back, Jan has appeared in 45 of our 50 matches in all competitions this season, including every minute of our Europa League campaign.

He's also become quite a weapon in our opponents' half with six goals, including four in the Premier League.

"You probably wouldn’t expect me to say anything else, but Jan’s been nothing short of fantastic, an unbelievable player," said Scott.

"He shows great composure on the ball, works hard, is an athlete and you’ve seen the goals he’s scored as well.

"He's been massive for us this season and you can only see him getting stronger and stronger.

"Technically, he's a very gifted footballer. He’s like a Rolls Royce, he glides around the pitch so effortlessly, he can step out with the ball and he’s nicked a few goals as well. That’s invaluable."
