Tottenham Hotspur fans have criticised Tanguy Ndombele for his role in Bayern Munich’s second goal.

There is a widespread feeling that Ndombele was Tottenham’s best player last night in their 7-2 defeat to Bayern.

The Frenchman was actually off the pitch when Spurs conceded three late goals, and his influence in midfield was clearly missed.


But Ndombele didn’t even cover himself in glory for the entire match.

The summer signing gave away possession too cheaply just before half-time, and he was made to pay when Robert Lewandowski capitalised and put Bayern in-front.

Ndombele’s first touch has now been criticised by some Spurs fans, who feel that he needs to sharpen up defensively.

Despite the error, Ndombele was still one of the few Tottenham players to leave the stadium last night with any credit.

Spurs were battered in the contest but Ndombele’s display, particularly in the first-half, did cause Bayern some problems.

Tottenham have now failed to win either of their first two Champions League games so far this season.
