For those who are not looking for ‘All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur’ spoilers from the upcoming episodes of the Amazon documentary, look away now.
The final three episodes of Amazon’s ‘All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur’ will come out next Monday and Football.London have revealed that they feature a meeting between Daniel Levy and record signing, Tanguy Ndombele.
The midfielder has endured a difficult first season at Spurs, having struggled to get much game time since the arrival of Jose Mourinho.
According to Football.London, the Spurs chairman calls the 23-year-old in for a meeting at the end of the season in order to convince him that he can turn around his fortunes at the club, with Ndombele admitting to the Spurs chairman that he needed to do more.
In the scene, the midfielder is seen telling Levy: “For three months I trained hard. Everybody says I trained really well, but if I don’t play it means there must be something else.”
The Spurs chairman then explains to Ndombele: “Many players in their first season, coming from overseas, found it difficult.
“It is normal. Moussa [Sissoko], obviously he knows him well, he came to Tottenham and was very disappointing in the early period.
“I said to him ‘Look I know you’re a better player than you are showing, but you have to decide what’s in your head’. The nice thing about Moussa is that he’s an absolute fighter. He was not prepared to leave the club.”
Responding to the 57-year-old, Ndombele then admits: “I’m not concentrating as I should be. I am not 100 per cent.”
Levy then reportedly offers up the midfielder a tale from his school days which proved to be a turning point in his life.
He says: “When I was at school, when I was 16, at a parents’ evening, the headteacher told my parents I should leave school.
“The next day I said to myself I’m not going to be beaten. From that moment onward I got As in my exams and I went to university. I’m a fighter.”
When Levy’s story is translated to the France international, he retorts: “I’m a fighter. I’ve always fought. I’m here today because I fought. I have never given up in football or in life.”
Spurs Web Opinion
Based on this scene, it does sound like Daniel Levy is desperate to ensure that the midfielder becomes a success at Spurs, which is understandable given the amount the club have invested in him. However, Ndombele’s chances of turning his Spurs career around depends entirely on him being able to convince Mourinho that he can be trusted, which I am not optimistic that the 23-year-old will manage.
