Tottenham star wants to hold ‘honest’ team meeting

Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen wants to hold an ‘honest’ team meeting to help the struggling side address their current problems, reports Sky Sports.

Tottenham currently occupy 12th place in the Premier League with a total of 14 points from their opening 11 games, which have included four home defeats out of five.

And the Belgian defender admits his sides form has been nowhere near good enough this term.

“It’s not good enough, but we are working hard to get to where we want to be,” Vertonghen said. “We want to be in the top four. We are looking for our best form.

“At the start of the season there where seven or eight teams wanting (to finish) top four, and two or three will be disappointed. I hope it’s not us. I am confident we can finish in the top four.

“After this week we need to talk. Belief is still there. Hopefully we can be honest with each other, and turn things around.”

Vertonghen has struggled for form and fitness this season, starting just six matches under Maurico Pochettino.

He was left out of their most recent home defeat to Stoke City, and will be looking to regain his place when Spurs travel to Hull City after the international break.
