Some Tottenham fans have reacted alarmingly to an image of Tanguy Ndombele that has been doing the rounds of social media following his return to the Hotspur Way training ground.
There have been some question marks over Ndombele’s fitness this season, with the midfielder suffering multiple injuries that have prevented him from having a consistent run in the side since his move from Lyon in the summer.
Although he has shown glimpses of fantastic quality, the 23-year-old has looked short of match fitness on several occasions.
Even in the FA Cup win over Southampton last Wednesday, the French international had to be withdrawn just after the start of the second half.
The midfielder, along with the rest of the Spurs squad, was back training at Hotspur Way yesterday following the winter break as the side prepared for the game against Aston Villa on Sunday.
An unflattering image of Ndombele that shows the midfielder appearing to look quite portly around his midsection.
Here’s how some Spurs fans reacted to Ndombele’s appearance.

In regards to the Ndombele photo…

Spurs Web Opinion
Ndombele seems to be quite a laid back character and doesn’t seem to have the hunger or desire it usually takes to succeed at this level. However, it is obvious that he has an abundance of talent. Whether he succeeds or fails at Tottenham is entirely up to him as he certainly has it in him to become one of the best midfielders in the league.
