Tanguy Ndombele was booed off the pitch in Spurs’ FA Cup third round tie against Morecambe and Dimitar Berbatov now struggles to see a future for the French midfielder.
“The situation for Tanguy Ndombele isn’t good for him, and things clearly aren’t working out,” Berbatov told Betfair.
“I’ve not seen him impress at Spurs and they spent a lot of money on him, I wasn’t convinced when they spent that money and there haven’t been any performances since he signed to change my mind. There’s clearly an issue.”
Ndombele arrived at Spurs in the summer of 2019 for a club record fee of £55million and he has only made six starts in the Premier League this season.
He was booed off the pitch by a section of Spurs fans in the 69th minute against Morecambe, when they were losing the tie 1-0.
“It’s never good to be booed by your own fans, that’s terrible and the solution is very easy. If you’re not happy, if you don’t get the playing time you deserve you go and speak to the manager, Conte in this case, and see what your position is in the team.”
Spurs were knocked out of the EFL Cup last night by Chelsea and Ndombele was dropped from the squad altogether.
The 25-year-old started to find his feet at one point under Jose Mourinho and so it’s no surprise to see him being linked with a move to Roma for a potential reunion with his former manager.
Ndombele’s contract runs until the summer of 2025 and it’s looking more than likely that a decision about his future will be made this month.
“If he is to leave, hopefully Spurs recover some of their losses.”
