Swansea v Spurs - magic moment

Posted on 3 October 2015  - 09:15

'Super Jan' was in full flight at Swansea in March, 2013.


Jan Vertonghen joined us in 2012 and made an instant impact in that first season.

Quickly nicknamed 'Super Jan' by the fans, his Superman celebration was first seen in our 3-2 win at Old Trafford in September, 2012 and there again at the Liberty Stadium in March of that season, the last of his six goals in a debut campaign to remember that ended with selection into the PFA Team of the Year.

Jan was in fine form at the Liberty on March 30, 2013. He strode out of defence, played a one-two with Gareth Bale and finished for 1-0 and minutes later, stepped up again and fired in a pass to Bale, who in turn found the top corner.

Swansea hit back to make it 2-1 but we held on for three points on our way to fifth place in the Premier League.
