“I had a good discussion with the manager. I instructed him I’m targeted on football, to maintain my recreation up and assistance the workforce,” Alderweireld instructed Sky Athletics.
“That’s all I can do. You can see I’m happy there, and I attempt to assistance the workforce, and that’s the way I usually play football.”
Questioned if he had acquired a new offer by Tottenham, he mentioned: “No, like I mentioned, I am targeted on football. The rest, I never know, we will see about that.”

Vertonghen will become Belgium’s most-capped participant if he features in both Earth Cup qualifiers from Bosnia on Saturday and Cyprus on Tuesday.
“We’ll be quite happy of him if he achieves this. He will be quite happy for himself too. It will be a excellent honour. Hopefully, we can rejoice it,” Alderweireld added.
