ENGLAND – Tottenham Hotspur manager, Jose Mourinho, has hailed Tanguy Ndombele following their 3-1 win at Sheffield United on Sunday.
Ndombele produced a sublime lob with his back to goal to net the third goal and seal three points for Spurs on Sunday.
It is only the 24-year-old’s fifth Premier League goal since he signed from Lyon in July 2019.
“I have enough experience to say and to feel that when a player is not playing very well, it’s his responsibility, and when a player turns things around and brings his performance level to a very high level, it’s also his responsibility,” Mourinho told reporters when asked about Ndombele.
When Mourinho arrived at Tottenham four months after Ndombele, it quickly clear the Portuguese was not particularly impressed with the Frenchman.
Injuries did not help Ndombele, but Mourinho regularly questioned his fitness and ability to adapt to English football.
