Tanguy Ndombele has taken to social media to post a message of peace and unity, seemingly in response to the tragedies in France over the last few weeks.
The murder of Samuel Paty, a teacher who was killed in Paris after displaying controversial Charlie Hebdo cartoons to his students during a lesson, and the subsequent fall-out has dominated the headlines throughout the world.
French President, Emmanuel Macron has reiterated the country’s support to enlighten values and freedom of expression following a terrorist attack in Nice.
Schools across France held a minute’s silence on Monday in memory of Paty at 11 a.m. while teachers were told to allow time to answer questions about his killing (Reuters).
With his nation now at its highest security level following the recent attacks, Ndombele seemingly took to social media to post a message of peace and reconciliation.
The Spurs midfielder took to Instagram to post a message in French that translated as: “The school of the Republic is like a football team. Teachers are gaffers.
“In order to learn and to win you always have to play together. Listen, share, help each other. At school like on a pitch, be united.”
