So far, so good for Jan

Jan Vertonghen has thanked his new team-mates for helping him to settle so quickly at Spurs.

So far, so good for Jan

The Belgium international played his first full 90 minutes for the club in Tuesday’s pre-season friendly against LA Galaxy.

As the defender pointed out afterwards, MLS champions Galaxy provided an ideal test, especially in the first half, but we took control in the second half as it ended 1-1 at the Home Depot Center.

“I have to adapt to the style of play but I feel good and the lads are really helping me,” said Jan, the former Ajax skipper.

“I feel amazing here. Everyone is helping me, the manager, players, staff and I’m so happy to play for Spurs.”

Next up are Liverpool in Baltimore on Saturday, with a 1pm kick-off local time (6pm UK).

It will be Jan’s first match for us against Premier League opposition, “I’m looking forward to it,” he said. “Liverpool are a great team but I hope we can beat them.”
