Pochettino says there’s no way back for Burnley target Janssen at Spurs

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed that the club are ready to sell Vincent Janssen despite their current injury problems.

Despite a shortage of attacking options, Pochettino is insistent on not using out-of-favour striker Janssen.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche is interested in the Dutchman, who was signed in the summer of 2016 but has been a flop at the club, not featuring since August 2017.

Pochettino, currently without the likes of Harry Kane, says there is no way back for Janssen in north London.

“I think it’s so clear that now it’s one year and a half that he’s not in our plans,” he said. “He’s not in Tottenham’s plans. Not in just the manager’s plans but the club’s plan.

“Eighteen months ago we took the decision for him to try to find a different place to play because for different reasons it didn’t work. That happens in football.

“It’s not a personal problem, it’s about the professional side. For different reasons that professional relationship isn’t working and we need to find a solution. We are trying to find the resolution.

“He got the injury months ago and we’re helping him, trying to find the right place for him to feel again like a player and play football.”
