Harry Winks urged to emulate Tottenham teammate Tanguy Ndombele by Rio Ferdinand

Speaking on BT Sport (h/t Football.london), former Premier League defender Rio Ferdinand has urged Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks to emulate teammate Tanguy Ndombele to win back a place in Jose Mourinho’s side.

The 24-year-old Winks has been in and out of Mourinho’s team this season. There had been a phase when he went weeks without playing a game in the Premier League. Things have been improving in recent weeks and his Man of the Match display against Wycombe Wanderers in the FA Cup should further help his cause.

And, Ferdinand, after the game, has urged the England international to follow in the footsteps of teammate Tanguy Ndombele, who has grown into a pivotal player after being out of favour under the Portuguese last season.

Indeed, the Frenchman has come a long way from his difficult times the last term and scored twice on Monday to lead Tottenham to the FA Cup fifth round. Winks, who also scored on the night, has now been urged to emulate Ndombele to become a key player under Jose.

“He’s got no better example in front of him than [Tanguy] Ndombele. He has been one of their better players in recent weeks and he was out of the team for long periods when Jose came in.

“He’s shown that if you fight, show the right attitude and the right character, along with quality, you’ll get an opportunity in this Tottenham side.”

Ferdinand also insisted that Winks had all the qualities to become a top player for Tottenham, but at the moment seems unhappy at not playing regularly.

“Harry is made of the right stuff, he’s a Spurs fan, he wants to play here, wants to be here, he’s the right kind of character to have in the place but, as you can see, there’s a tinge of him not being happy with not being a starter or a regular.”

Winks, despite his struggles, has shown in recent weeks that he is ready to put his head down and work hard. More of the same and there is no stopping him from becoming a regular under Jose. And Monday’s performance against Wycombe will only aid his battle and boost his confidence.
