Tony Cascarino and Georgie Bingham have both blasted the way Jose Mourinho treated Tanguy Ndombele after the Spurs head coach issued an ultimatum to the Spurs midfielder after the 1-1 draw against Burley on Saturday.
Ndombele has struggled to make the expected impact at Spurs since arriving for a club-record fee from Lyon last summer.
Mourinho insisted after the game at Turf Moor that Ndombele needed to improve if he is to remain a part of his plans and succeed in the Premier League (BBC).
While Cascarino acknowledged that the French international hasn’t hit the expected heights in North London, both he and Bingham laid the blame on Mourinho’s feet rather than the midfielder’s.
Watch what the pair said about the 23-year-old on talkSPORT:
“The levels he’s playing at is nowhere near the level I saw at Lyon.” 🇫🇷
“All #THFC midfielders have found it hard since Mourinho took over.”
“I heard the Ndombele comments… I thought ‘that’s basically bullying’.”

I fully support Jose’s decision to call Ndombele out. The fact that we are in March and he is still not fit enough to complete ninety minutes in the Premier League suggests an extremely lack of professionalism and desire on the midfielder’s part. I thought Jose was quite calm and measured in his comments and they were clearly meant as a warning to Ndombele.
