Some Spurs fans have backed Jose Mourinho after he publically warned Tanguy Ndombele that he needs to improve his fitness and intensity if he wishes to be a success in the Premier League (Sky Sports).

Ndombele arrived from Lyon with a lot of expectations on his shoulders after the club smashed their transfer record last summer.

After making a decent start to the season, the midfielder has struggled to establish himself in the side partly due to injury troubles.

With the Frenchman seemingly unable to complete ninety minutes, his fitness has been called into question by some fans.

He was handed a rare start against Burnley on Saturday but was withdrawn at half-time after a poor first-half performance.

The Spurs boss made it clear in the post-match interview that the midfielder has to improve considerably to be a part of his plans (Sky Sports).

Here’s how some fans reacted to Mourinho’s statement:

What makes Ndombele’s situation extremely frustrating is that his talent is there for all to see. He has everything in his locker to be amongst the best midfielders in the world but he just seems to lack the attitude and desire to get himself fully fit. I can’t see him lasting too long under Jose if he doesn’t change his ways.
