Pundit implies Spurs player is part of a ‘virus’ who is ‘starting to cause harm now’

Former Turkey international Tugay Kerimoglu has blasted several Galatasaray players, including Tanguy Ndombele, for their poor attitude, calling on the club to part ways with the Frenchman at the end of the season.

Ndombele has failed to impress since his loan switch to Galatasaray last summer and even though he has made a few appearances over recent months, question marks continue to be raised about his lacklustre displays.

Just last week, Fotospor pointed to Okan Buruk’s inability to get a tune out of the on-loan Tottenham man and some of the other signings as the reason why he is unlikely to still be in charge of the club next season.

Tanguy Ndombele is not winning people over in Turkey

Galatasaray edged past Antalyaspor 2-1 at Rams Park on Monday despite delivering a forgettable display and even though Ndombele did not play a part in the game, the midfielder was one of the names singled out for criticism by Tugay after the game.

The former Blackburn midfielder told Yenicag Gazetesi (as translated by Sport Witness): “How many matches has Tete played? He’s not physically in decline because he has not played as many matches as the others. Zaha is the same.

“Where are Ziyech and Ndombele? I cannot afford to badmouth the other players. You cannot be so careless. It seems to me that a virus has entered the team.

“If you cannot get the results from four players you have high expectations from, stop letting them train, thank them at the end of the season and part ways. They are starting to cause harm now.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Even if Ndombele has a strong finish to the season, it is now quite clear that Galatasaray are not going to take up the option to sign him permanently in the summer. Tottenham will have their work cut out in finding a club who are willing to pay a fee for the Frenchman.
