Tottenham’s Netherlands striker Vincent Janssen says he is the same player today as he was a year ago despite his hefty price tag.
The 22-year-old has joined up with Spurs after the completion of his protracted move from AZ Alkmar but he is far from happy with his former club for they way they handled the move.
Janssen became Tottenham’s most expensive signing of the summer so far when he joined from AZ Alkmaar for £17m last month but there were times when the deal did not look as though it would go through.
“AZ refused to even name a fee and I found that very irritating,” Janssen told the Mirror. “Sometimes you have to show your teeth, so I can’t be blamed for sticking up for my case.
“AZ went for the highest bidder. A year ago, I was worth only £400,000 and now I have been sold for 40 times that amount.
“But this is the football world. I can see the next player going for more than the £100m that is going round as the fee for Paul Pogba.
“But I am still the same guy as last year. I am just Vincent and I just accept everything that is happening in the football world around me.”
