Tanguy Ndombele believes it is possible to be happy at Tottenham Hotspur

Current Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Tanguy Ndombele, speaking to Media Carre (h/t Evening Standard), talked about the possibility of staying at Spurs and being happy in North London.

After not being part of Antonio Conte’s plans, the talented French midfielder returned to former club Olympique Lyon on a short loan spell. Now back at Hotspur Way, the 25-year-old is looking forward to the pre-season and talking about the potential of staying at Tottenham.

“Yes, I think it’s possible to be happy at Tottenham.”

“Regardless of where you can go, you can be happy or unhappy. We’ll see how things go during pre-season. I’m not putting any more pressure on myself than that.”

Ndombele has shown glimpses of his brilliance over the years. The midfielder is one of the best technically gifted players in the squad and fans have witnessed his skills first-hand, beating opposition players without breaking a sweat. All the midfielder wants to do now is play and win games.

“What I want is to be happy, take pleasure in what I do, play, win, that’s all I want.”

But the 25-year-old hasn’t been able to establish himself in the team since joining for big money in 2019 under Mauricio Pochettino. With the Italian in the dugout at Spurs, the French national saw his minutes dwindle, sitting mostly on the bench.

Ndombele subsequently went back to Ligue 1 on loan. Playing just 14 games for Lyon, the player probably didn’t have the homecoming many were expecting. Now back with the Lilywhites, the midfielder’s future is once again uncertain.

Ndombele’s place in the squad not guaranteed

Conte has made various additions to the squad since January. Rodrigo Bentancur and Yves Bissouma are the new faces Ndombele will compete with for a spot in the middle of the park if he stays.

With Ndombele being a player Conte didn’t fancy before, a place in the squad isn’t a guarantee. But if he does stay, fans will feel having a player with the experience and talent of the Frenchman in the squad wouldn’t be a bad thing going into next season with Champions League football back at the N17.
