Just four days sbobet168 after being knocked out of the Champions League by a couple of Juventus sucker punches the Spurs defender insisted it will be business as usual on Sunday in their quest for another crack at Europe's elite next season.
And the disappointed Belgian insisted they will do it their way - not the Italian one. Vertonghen admitted Spurs Euro exit had been tough to take after virtually dominating both games against the Juve giants.
"I can’t hide the disappointment," he revealed. "But I’m not that disappointed as much anymore because we’re doing better so I don’t have to be disappointed. Maybe that is the way to do it. Just make sure you don’t lose again
"We now know we can compete with everyone," he claimed. "We showed that in the group stages and in the last 16. Now we want another chance."
But Vertonghen vowed that there will be no sacrificing the attacking style of play coach Mauricio Pochettino has instilled into Spurs to achieve that chance.
"They (Juventus) are obviously a great team, but not the style that we want to play. And I believe that our style fits us better.
"We will always have our own identity and the way we play," he said. "We could have played five or six at the back (at Wembley), but that is not how we are.
"The way we want to play is that we want to show what we are here for and we believe it is the right way. To attack and to dominate the game.
"Barcelona and others have done it (won the Champions League) in the way we want to play."
Vertonghen admitted that no one can teach Spurs the ruthlessness Juve displayed last week. "But we can learn from it," he said. "We should have killed that game.
"But we have the right mentality and I know we have what it takes to get there. Hopefully we will get another chance to show that to the world.
"This is definitely the best team I have played in and the best physical condition I have been in. So obviously I want to reward myself and the team, and we will.
"This can be a key moment, I’m reaching my peak and feel like I’m at my peak. sbobet168 Other players feel in great shape and hopefully they will get better, a couple of others will get better, but it’s time to reward ourselves - and this team can reach a lot."
In the meantime, it's back to the bread and butter business for Vertonghen and co on Sunday afternoon - and Bournemouth could well feel their pain.
"It is all eyes on Bournemouth now,`" he added. "Hopefully we can win the FA Cup this year and the rest will follow. We’ve got two things to focus on — the top four and the FA Cup — they’re the two main goals this season. sbobet168
