Lads determined after Wembley loss - Jan
10 March 2015|Tottenham Hotspur
Jan Vertonghen said the message was clear when the players got back together last Monday after the double blow of Europa League elimination and the Capital One Cup Final loss at Wembley.
“We all just said we had to keep going, to stay strong,” said Jan after we completed back-to-back wins in the Premier League against Swansea on Wednesday night and then QPR at Loftus Road on Saturday.
“We all feel fit. We’ve played so many games but you could see against QPR that we can just keep running and we did that against Swansea as well.
“We were very happy after QPR. We’ve taken six points this week, we’re up close to the other teams and that’s where we want to be.”
Jan reflected on a ‘tough game’ at Loftus Road, but added: “I thought we were the better team and deserved to win.
“We defended well, kept a high line because they are dangerous when they get close to goal with their two strikers but we pressed them for 90 minutes and overall, it was a good performance.”
