Fenerbahce president candidate Ali Y. Koc has spoken during an event in Germany and given some insight into Vincent Janssen’s loan move from Tottenham Hotspur to Turkey last summer.
Futbolarena have reported on comments Koc made when questioned about Janssen’s move to Fenerbahce: “It’s incredible really. A club like us, Fenerbahce, always paying over the odds for players and it’s kind of become a tradition for our club. That’s not a good sign financially.
“For example, our club have paid €5m for Vincent Janssen. This is just a loan deal. No option, or redemption clause. We paid straight €5m for 10 months of a loan deal. This is not good for our club. We need to do it better, and we can do it better.”
Janssen’s move to Fenerbahce has turned into something of a nightmare for the Tottenham forward after missing most of the season with a foot injury.
Despite not playing for nearly four months the Netherlands international may have a chance to return to the Turkish club in the summer, with reports the player could be open to this.
Janssen struggled in his debut season in England, although his work rate, like it has been at Fenerbahce, was praised.
It seems the Dutchman isn’t in the long term plans of Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino and will likely be encouraged to find a new club this summer.
