It's been a difficult start to life at Tottenham Hotspur for Tanguy Ndombele, their club-record signing.

The 22-year-old midfielder, who joined Spurs for £63 million from Lyon this past summer, has found the net twice, but the team as a whole is struggling in a major way.

Tottenham lost 3-0 at Brighton prior to the international break, after losing 7-2 at home to Bayern Munich in a Champions League mauling a few days previous.

Ndombele sat out the trip to the Seagulls but played 64 minutes of the demolition by Bayern.


Individually, the 22-year-old has been decent, but fans of the North Londoners will be hoping that there's much more to come after what was spent on luring him to England.

But Ndombele - who played for Amiens as recently as 2018 - has reiterated that he won't be taking his foot off the pedal, acknowledging that it's easy to 'go backwards'.

He told Canal Plus in France when asked if he's satisfied with his form: "No, I’m not comfortable. I remain focused, I try and go forward all the while thinking you can quickly go backwards.

"Can I disappear from the world football radar? Yes, at least that’s how I look at things. Maybe in five years time, no one will be speaking about me, and there’s young talent coming out every year in football."
