Vincent Janssen expects to earn Spurs

Vincent Janssen admits his first season at Tottenham did not go to plan on a personal level and he has vowed to improve next term.

The Dutch international moved to White Hart Lane from AZ Alkmaar last summer for a reported £17million, but he scored just two goals in 27 Premier League appearances.

The 22-year-old spent much of the season in the shadows of the division’s leading marksman Harry Kane and admits he did not feature as much as he would have liked.

“I would not have minded had the season gone on a bit longer. I would have played more then,” he told NOS. “It is clear that this was not my best season. But I still learned a lot.

“We finished second in the Premier League so I think we can be satisfied. I did not have much of a role in Spurs’ successful season. I expected to play more. But this is the way it is.”

Janssen remains confident he can prove to be a success at Spurs and is hoping to rediscover his best form next term.

He added: “That is the way football is sometimes. Of course, it was a disappointing season. This is not what I hoped for.

But you can have a bad season. Things have all gone well for me in recent seasons so a year like this can happen for a young player.

“I am not afraid next season at Spurs will be like this again. I am very confident. Things can change very fast in football!”

Spurs have secured a top-four finish for the last two Premier League campaigns and they are priced at 1.73 to achieve that feat once again next term.

The north Londoners are also available at 9.00 to claim the English title for the first time since 1961.
