‘I don’t regret it’ Looks like Antonio Conte may have his work cut out next season with one Spurs star

By Eddie Razo -

Tottenham Hotspur has been one of the more impressive clubs this summer with the way they have improved their squad, and there aren’t done, considering they still have to upgrade their right wing-back and possibly add another central defender. 

However, the north London side is also in the process of offloading players who have no future under manager Antonio Conte. One player that Spurs surely want to see exit soon is Tanguy Ndombele. 

Ndombele left in January on loan to Olympique Lyonnais, but the French club isn’t planning on keeping the 25-year-old. In an interview with Media Carre Ndombele opened up on the difficulties of the move and how things didn’t exactly go to plan at Lyon. 

“It’s complicated, mitigated. Four months go by very, very quickly. I don’t regret it, even if we struggled,” Ndombele said.

“The most difficult thing to digest was getting eliminated by West Ham [in the Europa League], but that’s part of the life of a footballer, there’s a need to know how to get back up when things don’t go well.”

The France international now heads back to north London, where the club wants to offload him, but there’s likely not much of a market for him considering the performance he put forth the last few months in France, but he does say it’s possible to be happy at Spurs.

“Yes, I think it’s possible to be happy at Tottenham. Regardless of where you can go, you can be happy or unhappy. We’ll see how things go during pre-season. I’m not putting any more pressure on myself than that,” Ndombele said.

“I think that question… is rather complicated and personal at the same time, but what I want is to be happy, take pleasure in what I do, play, win, that’s all I want.”

It will be interesting to see whether Tottenham cut their losses, take a fee below the price they paid, or perhaps send Ndombele out on loan again in an attempt to bring up his value.

He doesn’t want to put any pressure on himself and he wants to be happy, on his 200k a week salary. Well well, there it is, the extent of this waste of talent’s ambitions.

Hitchen should be sued for the way he scouted (or didn’t scout) this waste of space, and what was Levy doing listening to the bloke? Blaming Poch for this mess is laughable, managers don’t personally scout players, they don’t know the finer details or know how they train, their fitness levels or personality. Wobbly belly has buckets of raw talent which was plain to see, but his transfer was clearly based on a showreel and not solid scouting, or due diligence for that matter.

Conte would prefer to use him as an outside toilet than a Spurs footballer. I dont think anyone disagrees. He is actually not right in the head. If we can get rid of him on a free then we will be lucky.

I disagree. Mostly just to disagree.

Total scumbag, the very definition of a wage theif. I could easily be referring to Daniel Levy but in this case it’s Tanguy who had so much promise but can’t be bothered to put in any effort whatsoever. The majority of fans were all for this transfer at the time and it looked like a masterclass, how wrong we all were. Let him leave on a free, if there’s anyone stupid enough to agree to take up that monstrous contract of his of course.

How do we get rid of this absolute disaster of a player? The lad’s just building himself a career reputation as a disruption. *DANGER, WILL ROBINSON!!*

In other news – Danny Rose has p1ssed off Watford so much that he’s now training at Hotspur Way. This moosh isn’t even welcome to train at his own club. Can we see a comparison evolving? Jesus wept 🙄

There should be some kind of performance related index to salaries. So if you sign for 200k a week, unless you get the minimum amount of starts in the team etc it drops down by say 30-50%. That would certainly c*nts like this to pull their finger out rather than sign the big contract and get a cigar on. What a sad excuse for a professional sportsman…

Absolutely. Hit the nail on the head.

Cant see him going anywhere unless he either takes a wage cut or spurs subsidise his salary…, & we take a 20-30 million loss on his transfer fee.

A loan to Fenerbahce or Galatasaray is my bet, another overpaid twerp to wash some more money through…
