Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen had a tough time before the winter break, with his early substitution in the FA Cup replay against Southampton a potential crossroads moment in his career.
The 32-year-old chose to unwind from this disappointment with a trip to the Netherlands, where he was spotted at a Stormzy concert and serenaded by a group of fans with a chorus of “Oh, Jan Vertonghen”.

Vertonghen acknowledged the chant with a shy wave.
This unexpected recognition from Dutch fans who will remember his Ajax days fondly, may have put a smile back on the Belgian’s face.
