Mauricio Pochettino reports that Jan Vertonghen is training well back in London as the squad prepares to face Atletico Madrid in Melbourne on Friday.


The defender picked up an ankle injury on Belgian duty in the European Championships.

“Jan is back in London and training well now, he’s very close to coming back,” said Mauricio at a press conference ahead of training at AAMI Park.

Asked if he could be fit to face Everton in our Premier League opener on August 13, Mauricio added: “We'll see when we arrive on Monday and start to train with the whole group, but if it’s not possible we have enough players to replace him.”
