“He was up and down, hitting every mark” Reporter impressed with this underfire Tottenham player

By Bruce Grove -

Alasdair Gold has revealed that Tanguy Ndombele was one of the fastest among Tottenham’s players during their warm-down session after the Leeds United match.

The Frenchman had been on the bench in the game, and as is customary under Antonio Conte, he and other players who weren’t involved in the 2-1 win partook in fitness drills after the fixture.

This is an important time in Ndombele’s career after he flopped under Jose Mourinho and Nuno Espirito Santo.

It seems he knows he has to impress Conte and Gold says he did well during the warm-down session.

“We watched him (Ndombele) after the game when they were putting them through their paces with what they do now, the fitness drills for those who didn’t play and he was among the fastest. He was up and down, hitting every mark on the reactions tests, twisting, turning, speeding and sprinting and all of that,” Gold said on the Gold & Guest Talk Tottenham Podcast.

The Boy Hotspur Says

Ndombele probably already understands that it will take hard work to impress Conte.

The midfielder has the talents to succeed, but he doesn’t put enough pressure on himself to contribute to the team.

Under Conte, he will either change that attitude or forget about playing a part in the Italian’s success at the club.

Hopefully, he will work hard enough to get back in the starting XI soon because he is one of the players we love to watch.

Conte is a coach who holds players to task, just like Jose. I will say that the change in performance data is encouraging, out running/sprinting teams is something I wanted Jose to do more of. This time next year we might have a decent looking team.

How do you solve a problem like Tanguy? Poch, Jose, Mason and Nuno could not get a tune of this lad so have all these simply misunderstood him? How many more managers do we need to see Ndom turn in to a player that we all want to see in our shirt? Conte is definitely the last…….until the next one!

Please Mason, Dele was not playing and Tanguy did not get a minute under Mason. Jose had him playing at the #10 spot where he was good enough for 65 minutes, going 90 maybe once. It was not enough, yes, for his talent; but if you stop for a minute to remember Jose slot him back as holding mid with us standing on our 18 yards box. Why in the world for a guy that does not tackle and run much be prefer for the spot over Locelso? That is like putting an alcoholic in charge of the bar. When Mason came in he did not see a minute so hammer the guy for lack of application do not make stuff up. Dier, Winks Alli were banished by Jose and Mason who “knows” a lot more than Jose install uen back as first teamers.

Didn’t mention Dele. No idea what you’re on about.

Ndom is a sheer waste of money. Anyone still holding out for this guy needs to move on. Mason didn’t play him? I wonder why!
