The Spurs attacker has confessed that his new boss has played a role in him adjusting to life at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham summer signing Clinton N’jie has admitted that Mauricio Pochettino has spent time helping him to adjust to life at White Hart Lane, with Maxifoot reporting that the new boy had previously thought his introduction to the North London club had not went well.

Spurs splashed the cash to bring the gifted young Cameroon international to the club from Lyon in the summer, after the versatile attacker had impressed last season in Ligue 1 for the Stade de Gerland outfit.

However, the African forward arrived with an injury and took time to make his first-team bow for the club, with concerns that N’jie could well face time on the sidelines at the start of the season.

The young forward has stated that initially he did not think that his start to life at Tottenham had gone well, but Pochettino helped in convincing him that he would make an impact at the club.

“It had been two months and a few weeks and I did not know the competition, so obviously I lacked rhythm,” Maxifoot quote N’jie as saying.

“In my head, it was not going very well. Before arriving I was injured in Lyon. I arrive, I get hurt!

“I started to ask myself questions. But the coach talked to me and reassured me.”

N’jie has made a number of cameo appearances from the bench so far this season, including a late foray in the 4-1 victory over Manchester City yesterday.

The versatile attacker was used as the furthest man forward against Manuel Pellegrini’s side when he was introduced, with N’jie impressing with his ability on the ball and pace in behind the visiting defence.
