Tottenham boss Nuno Espirito Santo has asked fans to stay patient with midfielder Tanguy Ndombele. The French international made his first appearance in the Europa Conference League after he asked the club to let him go prior to the start of the season. The midfielder was bought from Lyon for £60m plus add-ons. He was disappointed to have been left out of the side by Ryan Mason at the end of last season. He looked lively in Europe and look the most dangerous player on the pitch for Spurs.
“It was the first game Tanguy was involved in since the beginning of the season,” Tottenham head coach Nuno Espirito Santo said about Tanguy Ndombele. “We had all the pre-season and we are already playing Premier League and European competition and it was Tanguy’s first game so let’s be patient.”
“[They are a] very good team. Thomas is doing an amazing job,” he added about Thomas Tuchel and his Chelsea team. “They have an amazing squad, talented players, they play good football, they are organized, they are intense. They are European champions so we must value that as we do to all of the opponents but Sunday we will compete, that’s a promise.”
“No, there’s no surprise at all. Thomas already did an amazing job at Borussia Dortmund [and was] fantastic at PSG. He and his coaching staff have enormous quality so I am not surprised by the success of Thomas. For me it is not a surprise because you can see how good they play.” he concluded.
