“I deliberately handled ball” exclaims benevolent Janssen

Spurs star centre forward Vincent Janssen admits that he deliberately handled the ball for Harry Winks goal against West Ham. 

Speaking post-match, Janssen commented: “The ball was flying past my arm so I just stuck it out there to stop it. At the time I didn’t really care, it is just West Ham after all.”

The Dutchman has admitted that he subsequently felt a degree of guilt over handling the ball in the lead up to the goal, explaining: “Just seeing row upon row of misery dressed in claret, I realised just how hard it must be to support a team as abjectly woeful as West Ham and that I had done the wrong thing. 

“In the back of my head I had to make amends. Handing West Ham the penalty to make my net contribution equal was the right thing to do.”

Janssen has yet to score in open play for Spurs, understood to be a result of his continued desire not to offend opposing fans of a sensitive disposition.
