TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR Vertonghen would have won his battle to qualify for the Champions League final.
Jan Vertonghen is apparently more likely than not to play in the Champions League final next month.
Jan Vertonghen is winning his battle to be fit for the Champions League final against Liverpool on June 1, according to the Daily Mail.
They report that the Belgian international has accelerated his rehabilitation by taking part in a training session with the rest of the team on Wednesday – which other stars blocked Davinson Sanchez and Harry Kane have also done.
And the defender is ranked 60/40 in the report to play in Madrid, having not played since his injury in the spectacular victory in the semifinals on the return leg against his former club Ajax. Fans are excited for the final and they have got their tickets for the Champions League final.
The Spurs will likely need Sanchez or Vertonghen to team up with Toby Alderweireld as they try to fight the power of Liverpool’s top three.
And Vertonghen, who earns £ 100,000 a week in North London (Spotrac) – is by far the most experienced option and the man Mauricio Pochettino would probably choose if he could only have one.
The fact that Vertonghen was appointed to Belgium by coach Roberto Martinez’s team for the matches against Kazakhstan and Scotland on 8 and 11 June respectively is also cited as a positive sign.
The extended break between the end of the national season and the final does not make much sense – but it certainly helped Tottenham
fight the impact of the injury and fatigue that dragged him through his season.
