JAN VERTONGHEN joined in on Tottenham Hotspur fans’ celebration of their Champions League qualification boost on Sunday.
With Arsenal’s draw at home to Brighton, Mauricio Pochettino’s side should finish in the top-four, barring a three-point, eight-goal final day swing.
Despite Spurs eduring a tough weekend of their own, the moment was a satisfying one for the Belgian defender.
At full-time of Arsenal’s game, Vertonghen simply tweeted: “I’ll take that.”
The tweet was quickly liked and retweeted by eager Tottenham supporters, revelling in their rivals’ struggles.
One joked in response “Can’t wait to lose 6-0 on Sunday and get into Champions League by a +1 goal difference.”
Unai Emery’s side must now rely on winning the Europa League to confirm their place in next season’s Champions League.
The battle to finish inside the top-four has been mired in top sides dropping points they wouldn’t usually drop.
Spurs’ loss at Bournemouth meant they have only won one of their last four in the league, a record still bettering Arsenal and Manchester United.
That pair saw their top-four hopes fizzle out with disappointing draws on Sunday, Chelsea booking their place in Europe’s top competition by beating Watford 3-0.
