Jan Vertonghen update after defender’s horrifying injury against Ajax

Jan Vertonghen came round in the dressing room and was doing ‘okay’ after a horrifying head injury in Spurs’ Champions League clash with Ajax.
The Belgian was forced off ten minutes before the break when he collided with team-mate Toby Alderweireld and Ajax goalkeeper André Onana.
Vertonghen was clearly distressed when he was receiving treatment on the field and his shirt was full of blood from the collision.
Remarkably, Spurs’ medical staff gave Vertonghen the all clear to continue but within moments of returning to the pitch the Belgian signalled that he was unfit to continue.

In horrifying scenes, Vertonghen made his way off the pitch and had to be held up by club staff as they feared he was about to collapse. Spurs are already without the likes of Harry Kane and Harry Winks, while Moussa Sissoko had to replace Vertonghen.
However, BT Sport presenter Gary Lineker confirmed at half-time that Vertonghen’s condition had improved.
