In an interview with Canal +, Tottenham coach José Mourinho judges the season of his three French internationals Hugo Lloris, Moussa Sissoko and Tanguy Ndombele. If he is a big fan of the former Amiens and OL player, he believes that the Blues midfielder can and must do a lot more.
Between José Mourinho and Tanguy Ndombele, it’s a bit like “I love you, me neither.” The Tottenham midfielder (24) has regularly been the target of criticism from his coach. If relations between the two men have sometimes been stormy, they have improved in recent months. This does not prevent the Portuguese technician from being completely satisfied with his performance. And to launch booster shots, even outright pressure blows to the French: “Tanguy, I’ll be honest, he’s the kind of player you always expect more than he gives you,” Mourinho told Canal + . Because he has so much talent, that you always expect more. His talent is incredible. His talent, his creativity in the midfield, his vision of the game… He has no equivalent in European football in this regard. moment.”
“He never goes to the limit of effort, sacrifice and even ambition!”
Fan of the former Lyonnais, the Spurs coach admits to being frustrated by the international tricolor (7 caps). “I always come back to the same thing: I feel he can give more, he continues. He never goes to the limit of effort, sacrifice and even ambition! I love him as a player, but he frustrates me a bit because I feel he can be even better than he already is. When I look at the France team and Tanguy isn’t playing, I don’t blame Didier (Deschamps) , I blame Tanguy because he is better than the others and he should show it every day in training and in every game. “
