According to foreign media reports, Tottenham’s new aid Vinicius was asked by a doctor about the scar on his leg during a medical examination. The player claimed to be Vertonghengan.
Vinicius joined Tottenham on loan last Friday. During the physical examination, the doctor found that Vinicius had scars on his leg. Because of concerns about the condition of his leg, the doctor asked him if he was wearing leg guards during the game.
Vinicius pointed to his right leg and said: "This is Vertongheng!" This summer Vertongheng joined Benfica on a free transfer. He and Vinicius also became teammates for a while.
Afterwards, Spurs officials released a video of Vinicius naming Vertonghen on social media, and Vertonghen reposted the video with a face-covering emoji.
