Vertonghen: Spurs are strong
Jan Vertonghen believes the Tottenham squad have enough about them to bounce back from the loss to Wigan on Saturday.
A 1-0 defeat coupled with an abject performance saw the Spurs players jeered from the field at White Hart Lane as Wigan became the latest team to test Andre Villas-Boas' side on home turf.
Belgium international Vertonghen now expects a response from the players in a week where they face Maribor in the Europa League before travelling to face Barclays Premier League champions Manchester City on Sunday.
"The team is strong enough to come back from this defeat," he told the club's official website.
"We have a lot of important games ahead, important games in Europe and difficult away games.
"We have to stick together. We know we're strong in away games and we can win at any away ground."
