Rob Green has said that Tanguy Ndombele will not play again under Antonio Conte while Chris Sutton has admitted that it is difficult to see a way back for the Frenchman at Tottenham.
Ndombele struggled to impact the game against Morecambe on Sunday and the midfielder was booed by Spurs fans for trudging off the pitch slowly when he was substituted.
When asked about the reaction from Tottenham fans, Conte said after the game that it was up to the midfielder to win the fans over.
However, reports indicate that the North London club are now looking to shift the former Lyon man on this month, either on loan or on a permanent deal.
Sutton stated that walking off in the manner Ndombele did on Sunday when his team were 1-0 down was inexcusable.
The former Celtic striker told BBC 5 Live’s Monday Night Club (10/01/22): “As soon as he did that it became about him and moping around. It’s not done him any favours.”
“There is no excuse in that situation yesterday to walk off that pitch slowly when your team is losing. That is not understanding what the club is about or what the supporters want.
“His team was losing an FA Cup tie, they were being humiliated.
“This goes against Ndombele. When things like that happen, it’s hard to see him have a future at Spurs.”
Green suggested that the France international’s antics on Sunday put an end to any hopes of saving his Tottenham career.
The former West Ham goalkeeper said about Ndombele: “It is one big mistake to trudge off the way he did straight down the tunnel.
“It’s poor. There is only one decision that Conte will make and he won’t play again.”

Ndombele’s talent has never really been in question but unfortunately, he has always looked disinterested in terms of his body language.
The Frenchman strikes me as someone who is not driven to become the best he can be and is not particularly passionate about football.
Unfortunately, that makes him a very bad fit for Conte, who demands that all of his players put the team first.
