Tottenham boss Villas-Boas defends Vertonghen after Torres spat

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas has defended Jan Vertonghen in the wake of Saturday’s clash with Chelsea striker Fernando Torres, reports Sky Sports.


Jan Vertonghen


The Spurs defender, who was battling with Torres throughout the match, saw the Spaniard dismissed for a second yellow card having raised his hands to Vertonghen’s face.


Villas-Boas, who faced his former employers at White Hart Lane on Saturday, has defended his captain after the incident, claiming Vertonghen is a ‘great person’.


The Portuguese said: “Well I think the incident is pretty clear and people must draw their own conclusions from what they saw.


What we have with Jan, he is only in his second year and he has become the captain of Spurs as well. He is one of our captains elected by myself and by the club because he has been that type of leader and that type of person for his last years with the national team and with Ajax. So he is a person that we hold high in the team.


I'm extremely happy that most of the media saw the incident, knows about Jan's values and have decided to draw positive conclusions about him and about his character.


So that's the end of the matter for us. We believe in the player a lot and we believe he is more than a great player and a great person.


Tottenham travel to Ramenskoye on Thursday to face Anzhi Makhachkala for the first time in a European competition; Villas-Boas’ side will hope to move onto six points in Group K.
