Pochettino and PSG have revenge in mind ahead of Bayern Munich clash

  Pochettino and PSG have revenge in mind ahead of Bayern Munich clash On Wednesday night PSG take on Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena in a repeat of last year's final when the German side triumphed 1-0 in Lisbon thanks to a Kingsley Coman strike. Having passed his first acid test in seeing off a disjointed Barcelona 5-2 on aggregate in the last-16, Pochettino will know he faces a much tougher assignment in the first leg of the quarter-final against the German champions. While nobody is expecting PSG to waltz into Munich and take an easy win, neither should PSG be considered as underdogs ahead of the tie.

London (AFP) - Tottenham flop Vincent Janssen has left the club after agreeing a deal to join Mexican top-flight side C.F. Monterrey for a reported £6.3 million. The 25-year-old Netherlands international joined Spurs from AZ Alkmaar in 2016 but failed to make an impact at the Premier League club. But in his three years at the club he made just 42 appearances, scoring six goals, and spent almost the entire 2017/18 season on loan at Fenerbahce. Janssen played just three games for Spurs last season , all as a substitute. "We have reached agreement with Mexican side C.F. Monterrey for the

After returning to Spurs , Janssen made three appearances last season coming back into the first-team following time spent with the U-23’s. Football.london report the Dutchman is set for a medical on Monday as the transfer edges closer. It comes after right-back Kieran Trippier was sold to La Liga giants Atletico Madrid for £20m. Full-back Serge Aurier is also available on the transfer market, with veteran defender Dani Alves linked to replace Trippier. Another potential casualty at Tottenham is left-back Danny Rose, who was granted extra time off from Spurs ’ pre- season tour in Singapore so he

Tottenham fans were never likely to miss Vincent Janssen, but seeing the Dutchman's astonishing open-goal clanger for Monterrey will bring back sour memories.

In the 74th minute of the Mexican side's CONCACAF Champions League last-16 clash with Atletico Pantoja, Janssen had already scored to put his side 5-1 up on aggregate.

Then came an un-missable chance to make it 3-1 on the night. A low cross came in which beat the diving keeper, leaving Janssen unmarked inside the six-yard-box. It was almost too easy.

The Dutchman watched it onto his boot but the ball made contact with his heel, bouncing agonisingly wide. The striker lunged after the ball but it was far too late, and his team-mates were left stunned.

  From 6-1 to sixth – What's gone wrong for Tottenham since humiliating Man Utd? Tottenham's 6-1 thrashing of Manchester United prompted title talk. Since then, Jose Mourinho has been outshone by his old club.The Red Devils manager described the 6-1 battering at Old Trafford as "my worst day ever", and "very embarrassing" as he tried to come to terms with United's heaviest defeat since Alex Ferguson retired in 2013 and some deeply worrying performance levels from his players.

Janssen , by contrast, couldn't break into Monterrey 's starting XI under former coach Diego Alonso, and even when the club made a midseason switch to Antonio Mohamed was unable to get into the first-choice team. "I think there’s a lot of quality in the league, very good players," Janssen told Fox Deportes However, it was Janssen who actually arrived, saying in his first interview in Mexico he was intrigued by the adventure Mexico would bring and once he learned more about Monterrey 's project, he was convinced to sign. The first few months of the Mexican adventure won't be viewed as a success

Vincent Janssen arrived at Tottenham Hotspur as a player who Mauricio Pochettino hoped would take the club to the next level. He ended up as an afterthought, and was an undisputed flop , scoring just six goals in 42 games after costing £17 million. Tottenham finally sold him in the summer to Mexican side Monterrey , and he is on his way to securing hero status at the club. Monterrey are into the Mexican play-off semi-finals and last night Janssen scored the winner, for his side to take a 2-1 first leg lead over Necaxa.

The clanger shoots into position as a front-runner for miss of the season, and another moment Janssen will wish to forget.

The forward bounced-back to set up the final goal of the night, with Jesus Gallardo scoring to send the Liga MX side through.

Janssen's disastrous Premier League move saw him go down as one of Spurs' worst ever transfers, scoring just twice in the top-flight.

The £18m signing managed 27 appearances in his debut season as Mauricio Pochettino was left without star man Harry Kane for long periods of the campaign, but the Dutchman never looked like seizing his golden opportunity.

In Mexico he's yet to re-find the stunning form which bagged him 27 goals in 34 games for AZ Alkmaar in the 2015-16 Dutch season, with six in 21 this season.
