Tanguy Ndombele has struggled for consistency since joining Tottenham Hotspur in the summer of 2019.
Ndombele was signed from Lyon for £55milion, with considerable expectations considering he had established himself as one of Ligue 1’s most promising midfielders.
Former Chelsea and Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte replaced the aforementioned Espirito Santo in the managerial dugout last week and Tottenham fans are now hoping that the Italian will be able to get the best out of their club-record signing.
A number of supporters took to Reddit to voice their opinions on the 24-year-old, claiming that accusations of him being lazy are wide of the mark.
kicksjoysharkness said: “Definitely. Just needs game time. It’s an unjust myth that he’s lazy. Puts in more running than most of our players when he’s on the pitch.
“I think just often times players like Winks, formerly sissoko, PEH (whom I love) etc are just better at playing the game more than him through the lens of saying the right things and not coming across as less motivated.
“A good manager will accept Tanguy for who he is, which isn’t the kid at the front of class holding their hand up, and give him the run of games he, and we, need.”
From the latest transfer news to those glorious wins in north London and beyond! There might even be a laugh or two too.
WeHateArsenal said: “If anyone can bring out a prime N’dombele it’s him. With the diet in place, strict practices and a structure I think he could be a game changer with what he have already seen when he’s on the pitch.

razerspurs said: “Conte is Tanguy’s 4th (or 5th if you count Mason) manager at Spurs. He’s only been here 2 and a bit years.”
