Ex-Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has suggested that Tanguy Ndombele may still struggle to get time on the pitch under new manager Nuno Espirito Santo.
Tanguy Ndombele’s future in North London has been the subject of speculation during the summer transfer window after the midfielder requested to leave the club (The Sun).
Tottenham reportedly demanded £51.5m for his departure which would have seen the club recoup most of the £55m they paid for the midfielder in 2019 (The Telegraph).
However, a move did not materialise for the 24-year-old, and it was reported on deadline day that a decision at board level had resulted in the conclusion that Ndombele will remain a Tottenham player for the upcoming season.
The French international has not played a single minute of football for Spurs in both pre-season or in the opening five competitive fixturees, with Carragher having his say on the situation.
He said on Sky Sports News (31/08): “Maybe not (get minutes) Ndombele. He hasn’t played at all in pre-season with Nuno Espirito Santo. Maybe there is a problem there as well.”
Ndombele has to buckle up. He is a Spurs player for this season whether he likes it or not.
Nuno has opted for a three-man midfield so there is an opportunity for him to work his way back in. The ball is in his court now.
