The forward’s first season in England definitely didn’t go to plan, with Janssen only netting six times and adding two assists.

Janssen spoke exclusively to De Telegraaf, and revealed that he initially found his role as a substitute difficult at Tottenham, “I initially found it difficult with my role as a substitute, sometimes sat in the stands at Spurs, but I learned to deal with it… As a young player I had to compete with Harry Kane, the top scorer of the Premier League, arguably the toughest league in the world. And a striker performing remains in the team.”

On his future, Janssen added, “That is a matter for after the holidays. I want the prospect of more playing time, but otherwise I’m now better keeping my mouth shut.”

Pressed on whether a return to the Eredivisie was an option, he stated, “I cannot say anything about that either. I keep all options open.”
