Small glimpses of a world class talent is what Tanguy Ndombele has shown in his time at Tottenham Hotspur. Unfortunately, glimpses of greatness is not going to cut it for the most expensive transfer in Club's history.
Things didn't go as expected for both the 24 year-old and Spurs, therefore it's now a matter of making it work between both parties and get the best out of the midfielder.
Ndombele has played two games this season across two different competitions, where he has shown his ability to create attacking chances for Nuno Espírito Santo's squad.
Gary Neville's verdict
Former Premier League champion and TV Analyst, Gary Neville addressed the situation on Ndombele after Spurs' fixture against Chelsea.
"That's the thing about Ndombele, you don’t know what to make of him, I don't think anyone does," Neville said. "He’s a fantastic technical player, he takes the ball in difficult situations, he dribbles with it and beats people.
But then you don’t see him for three or four minutes, six minutes, eight minutes and wonder where he is.
I watch Ndombele and I think there are a lot of players in Spain and Italy and sometimes they fit those leagues better than this league so I don’t think he’ll be appreciated over here because he doesn’t fit into a position or a type."
Since his arrival to the Club, Ndombele has played 77 games across all competitions for Tottenham Hotspur, recording eight goals and eight assists.
He is is under contract at North London until 2025.
Tanguy is one of the many high-quality players who can create danger for Spurs moving forward, and which he showed while being a consistent starter under Jose Mourinho at the beginning of last season.
