Vincent Janssen was Wednesday night thrilled and relieved after his first goal in an official game for Spurs. The 22-year-old striker made the 3-0 in the League Cup match with Gillingham: 5-0.

Janssen struck after a 51-minute goal by a penalty kick to redeem. Old-following his departure to chelsea, Christian Eriksen had already for the first two matches of the Spurs taken care of.

“I wanted that penalty per se taking,” said Janssen after. “It feels great to get my first goal for this fantastic club. The fans have made me very well supported.”

Janssen, last summer came from AZ, was only yet to score for Tottenham in the preparation. The sevenfold international of Orange played all five league games for the Londoners, one of which is as basisspeler.


Janssen has a long-term injury to Harry Kane, view more game time for Tottenham. Manager Mauricio Pochettino thinks it’s important that spits the hateful zero.

“This hit is very important for the confidence in the upcoming matches”, said the coach told the BBC. “It is also nice for Janssen that he is the love of the supporters can feel it.”

Pochettino noted that Janssen still more could and perhaps should be scoring against League One club Gillingham.

“He was unlucky in the closing. For a striker it is sometimes difficult to create opportunities, but that went fine. That is the most important, that he was in the penalty area regularly in scoring position.”
