Head injury affected me for nine months, says ex-Tottenham defender Vertonghen


The Belgian said that he couldn't shake a problem that he initially suffered in the semi-finals of the 2018-19 Champions League

Former Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen has admitted he suffered through the effects of a head injury for most of the 2019-20 season without speaking out about it. 

The Belgian initially suffered the injury in the first leg of the 2018-19 Champions League semi-final against Ajax after he collided with team-mate Toby Alderweireld. 

Vertonghen initially attempted to play through the injury but was unable to continue, and needed to be helped off the field.
