Ndombele: buck your ideas up, or you will devalue yourself
Fabio Paratici and Daniel Levy will hold talks with Tanguy Ndombele. This is according to various sources, one of them being the Evening Standard newspaper. His future with the club is in jeopardy (and I am not talking about the American game show), so there will be a meeting this week to discuss this annoying matter (at least to the hierarchy at Spurs).
Tolerance with Ndombele is wearing bloody thinly; however, it is currently unclear how the talks will unfold. As I reported in a previous article, Ndombele is desperate to leave Tottenham as soon as possible, however, nobody was prepared to pay what Levy wanted (£51.5m) and for a player that could cause even more problems for the purchaser.
As every Tottenham fan knows, the French player has yet to play a minute of football under Nuno Espirito Santo. On Nuno’s part, he has claimed that Ndombele playing isn’t an option at the moment (according to Football.London).
No club would meet the board’s demands, therefore there was a decision made, on deadline day, that he would remain our player for this season.
It is evident that Ndombele has issues; the question is, how deep do those issues run? If he refuses to play this season for us, then his valuation will hit rock bottom, and then nobody will want him, and his career could be virtually over. He needs to sort himself out and quickly.
I hope these talks will result in Ndombele knuckling down. With willpower, there is enough time for him to sort himself out and work his way back into the heart of our midfield. After all, he is earning £200,000 per week… there should be enough incentive there to give himself a kick up the arse.
Let us hope the powers that are sort things out and quickly.
Take care, Glenn
