    The video of him and Sissoko after the Madrid game was what Jan down to a T:

    Sissoko: "Hey Jan, good result eh?"
    Jan: " Hmm, not bad, not bad"

    He just kind of ploughed through their defence to score that from what I remember. He's got such determination when he's on the ball, I wish he'd do that more often now.

    The way i saw the game mate after Salah got his goal any joy he got was not out of Verts - any time those two came together Jan came out on top every single time - i cannot think of any of incident outside of his goal he got the better of Verts.

    Remember Vertonghen played LB for us in the early days, so he had licence to attack.
    {Plays LB for his country and got a goal just the other week.)

    When we are 3 at the back, one of them has licence to go forward at times.
    Vertonghen always looks the most dangerous.

    Doesn't play left back anymore for Belgium. They've moved to a back three and he slots in with Toby and another.
