Monterrey star Vincent Janssen admits he can now put his struggles at Tottenham into perspective.
The Holland international had a difficult time in London, though says he looks back now and insists he has no regrets.
He told Voetbalzone: “In retrospect, the step may have been too big, but a stopover would not really have been possible because the top Dutch clubs could not meet the transfer fee (of AZ Alkmaar).
“In the end I played quite a lot in my first season in the Premier League and of course I should have done more with that, but I went from Almere City to Tottenham in eleven months. There I was alone on the field among all those big names."
On his success with Monterrey, Janssen adds: "It may also be that I will go back to Europe in six months or a year if I am offered a nice adventure there, but for now I am just happy here. As a football player I have also seen the other side, so that good feeling is worth a lot to me.
"Ultimately, Mexico has been the perfect choice for me and another great experience in my career. The Netherlands, England, Turkey, Mexico and later maybe America. Then it's a great career, right?"
