Tottenham fans are now seeing the best of Tanguy Ndombele after a difficult first year in N17.
Injury and fitness rumors following his record move from Lyon suggested he might be on his way out of the club after a nightmare in the capital.
Thankfully, Ndombele stayed and Jose Mourinho and Tottenham are now seeing the best of him.
Moussa Sissoko played a key role in his compatriot’s recovery and the two of them built a very close relationship during their time at the club.

Moussa Sissoko plays in various positions this season, including second midfield with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg after a formation change. He believes Ndombele likes his # 10 role once he’s played there as it gives him more freedom in pitch to make an impact in the final third.
“Everyone knows who I am and how I am,” Sissoko told the club’s official matchday program (which can be purchased here) when asked about his role at the club. “I have a lot of experience in football and have been with the club for five years so I know everyone. I can say that I have learned a lot from the past from some very experienced players.
“As with the French national team, I had the opportunity to play with great players like Thierry Henry, Nicolas Anelka and a lot of players, including at my old club, Toulouse, so I learned from them.
“In this team I try to do the same. I know when I first came to this club it wasn’t easy and it took me some time to calm down and adjust, but now I feel really good and all.” believe in me
“‘I’m trying to do the same with the new players who have just arrived and even the players who have been here. If I can help them or tell them something to help them, which in turn helps the team, I think this will benefit everyone.
“We know Tanguy had a tough season last year, but that’s normal because he came from another country, had to learn a new language, is young, lives alone, has a different style of football and after the manager who brought him got left here, then there was a new manager – it was a lot of things for him.

“It took him some time to adapt and I was here with the team and everyone at the club to help him feel comfortable and feel free to do his job. This year He is doing very well. And that is also because of him because he did not give up. He was always focused, always worked hard and we can now see all the efforts that he made.
“We all know he’s a wizard and a creative player with the ball, and we can see he’s playing more than number 10 this year and having more freedom on the field to go left and right.” I think that’s what he likes.
“That’s good for him and hopefully he can continue in that direction and play some great games, score a lot of goals, get some assists and help the team do some good things.”
