The next few months are quite probably Vincent Janssen’s last in the Lilywhite.
Despite anything else you might’ve heard, all is not rosy between the Dutchman and the Argentine. Gladys alerted us recently to a
council clampdown on a popular dogging spot in Jaywick significant concern over Vinny’s ability to remain at peak match fitness.
The suggestion is the 23 year old is not quite made of the ‘right stuff’ as far as Pochettino is concerned and the ‘charity minutes’ being put Janssen’s way appear insufficient keep the boy entirely focused.
The addition of Fernando Llorente is something that Vincent could use to his advantage, it adds a different dimension to our frontline, and could open up real opportunity
Under Pochettino, Kane was never properly rested. The games he did start on the bench invariably resulted in him coming on for the last half hour to make sure the job was eventually done properly.
Llorente could alleviate the ‘either or’ scenario and therefore give Janssen a real chance to shine. If the lad doesn’t take the chances he gets between now and January, he’ll be sold.
