The Dutch international has been deemed a flop by the English media after only netting four penalties and one goal from open play since his big money move from AZ Alkmaar in the summer.

With Harry Kane injured, Janssen was handed his first Premier League start since November against Burnley on Saturday and the forward impressed, despite not scoring, and came off to the fans signing his name.

Speaking to Yahoo Sports, Janssen has stated he has not lost faith despite his difficult start in England, “I’m not that type of guy who’s going to question myself.

“It was difficult in the beginning of course because it was a new competition and a new team – a top team. I needed some time and I got the time.

“I’m learning every day, and every minute I get I try to do my best for the team, for the club. That’s what I aim for every day.

“For me a goal is a goal, so if I score a penalty it counts as a goal as well, but of course I was happy to score the first goal from open play, because people talked a lot about it.

“It was nice and it gave me power and I try to keep going. Goals always give you boosts and that one did as well.”

Janssen was linked with a move to Turkey in January but stayed in London to fight for his place. Asked whether he would be at Spurs next season, he responded, “Yes I think so. We will see.”
