Lots of Tottenham fans have been reacting to some worrying comments on the injury to Jan Vertonghen, as Belgium manager Roberto Martinez said he will miss the next two international breaks.
Tottenham felt the full force of Vertonghen’s injury on Wednesday as Lionel Messi and company ran riot at Wembley, and it looks like the Belgian’s injury is a lot worse than first suspected.
The experienced defender left last weekend’s win at Huddersfield with a muscle problem, and Martinez has claimed he will miss the next two Belgium camps.
The next international break after next week’s doesn’t come until the middle of November, meaning it will be at least six weeks before Vertonghen is fit.
Toby Alderweireld and Davinson Sanchez aren’t exactly bad cover in that department, but the injuries are mounting up in North London.
Tottenham of course opted not to sign a single player this summer, and fans are fearing the worst after this latest setback.

Vertonghen being out for the next six weeks (maybe even longer) is a massive, massive blow for us. Undoubtedly one of the best CBs in the league. He’s going to be missed. Get well soon, @JanVertonghen. pic.twitter.com/YTaOmsQAAw

Fatigue lends itself to injuries. If there was ever a summer window to NOT bring anyone in, a World Cup year where practically the entire starting 11 played is most definitely not the one.

Sanchez must step up or the season could be in jeopardy…

Gutted. Davies as a LCB would be an option

the question that needs to be asked is why the hell did he play on for 30 minutes after going down with the injury?!

The fact that Toby may have been sold doesn’t bear thinking about
