“His contract would have been cancelled” – Journalist brutally slams struggling Tottenham midfielder

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham midfielder Tanguy Ndombele has been brutally criticised by a Turkish journalist.

Ndombele was signed by Tottenham from Lyon in 2019 for a club-record fee of £63m, but has failed to live up to expectations since his arrival.

He has failed to impress any of the managers who have managed the club in recent years.

The midfielder spent last season on loan at Napoli helping them to win the league but the Italian club did not sign him permanently despite an option to buy, with his asking price deemed too steep by Napoli director Cristiano Giuntoli,.

Tottenham struggled to loan out the Frenchman in the summer but found suitors in Galatasaray very late in the summer.

But his loan move with the Turkish giants has been nothing but a disaster. He has had major disciplinary issues and his weight has also been a problem.

Reports surfaced of disciplinary problems and fitness struggles, including a weight-loss program violation involving fast food and soda, resulting in a clash with the Galatasaray manager.

There were suggestions that his time at Galatasaray will be cut short in January and he will be sent back to Spurs but somehow he ended up staying at the club and even got some minutes under his belt recently.

A number of pundits and journalists have slammed the midfielder including Sercan Dikme.

One journalist even questioned how the 27-year-old has been receiving playing time when there were discussions of terminating his contract altogether.

The reporter, Sercan Dikme, went as far as to assert that Ndombele’s contract would already have been terminated if he had played for Galatasaray’s rivals, Besiktas.

Dikme told GS Gazete:

“Who gets the most criticism at Galatasaray? Ndombele. Okan Buruk is still playing him and nobody says anything. I bet he wouldn’t have played for one month at Beşiktaş, his contract would have been cancelled.”

With Ndombele’s Tottenham contract entering its final 18 months, Spurs may have to consider a cut-price exit in the summer to address the situation.

If they fail to find a buyer for him this summer, he will leave on a free next year.
