“Very happy”: Jose Mourinho impressed with Tottenham star’s turnaround after difficult season



Jose Mourinho pleased with Tanguy Ndombele turnaround

As reported by Sky Sports, Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has claimed he is pleased to see Tanguy Ndombele turn things around at the club after a difficult first season.

Ndombele signed for Tottenham in a club record transfer from Olympique Lyon last summer. However, the Frenchman endured a torrid first year in England, spending more time on the bench than on the pitch.

Ndombele has impressed in the new season

While injuries didn’t help his cause, Mourinho was clearly unimpressed with Ndombele and criticised him publicly on a few occasions. At one point it seemed like the 23-year-old would be sold by the club this summer.

However, Ndombele has managed to turn things around, putting up impressive performances in the new season. The midfielder scored an important goal against Lokomotiv Plovdiv last week and then showed glimpses of brilliance in his first-half display against Southampton.

“I’m very happy. I tell all the time, when a player improves it’s a player’s responsibility, it’s the player’s credit. The player does that by himself, to understand what he has to understand and go in the right direction that he has to go.”

It was always a matter of Ndombele being fully fit and getting a string of games together, which, unluckily, didn’t always happen last term. But, now that he is getting proper run-outs and is fit, the Frenchman is starting to show his quality. Should he keep on with this upward trajectory, he will soon became an indispensable member of the team.
