Vincent Kompany is eager to end Vincent Janssen’s misery at Tottenham Hotspur as the Manchester City legend eyes his first move.

Now that he is in charge of Anderlecht, Vincent Kompany is going to do things the way they haven’t been done in Belgium. The Belgium international left Manchester City after a glorious career with the Citizens.

Now, Kompany will be Anderlecht’s player-manager for the upcoming season. The Belgian giants finished 4th in the league last season and are looking to mount a strong title challenge next season. With their former player back, the Belgians might be able to attract players from bigger leagues.

And according to HLN, Kompany is looking to bring Tottenham Hotspur striker, Vincent Janssen to the club. The Dutch striker has endured a miserable spell with the North London giants and has rarely been given a lot of minutes on the pitch. With a return of 6 goals in 42 appearances, Janssen’s time at the club is pretty much over.

And Kompany is willing to give the troubled striker a way out of the club. Mauricio Pochettino also wants to offload the striker to generate funds.

Janssen was supposed to be sold in January but an injury changed things. But now that the season is over, it is perhaps time for him to leave.

During last season, Pochettino admitted that the club always wanted to give Janssen a chance but it never worked out.

“We need to clarify the situation. He was injured for the first part of the season and then when we decided that he started to be part of the team again, he got injured again,” he said.

“I think some people were wrong. Jesus [Perez, his assistant manager] showed me a tweet.

“He was injured and you [the media] said: ‘Why is he not involved?’

“You jumped in a swimming pool with no water. But at that moment he was injured. Jesus shows me wrong things, things that are not true.

“We were helping him to recover. He was struggling with his fitness. He had problems with his feet. In the last months, he was training consistently with the team.

“And now that he is in a position where he can help the team, of course, he is available to use, why not?”
