Pochettino comments as Ndombele gives Tottenham fans an exciting glimpse

Tanguy Ndombele featured for Tottenham Hotspur for the first time following his club-record £62.8 million (BBC Sport) switch from Lyon.

The midfielder was handed a cameo against Juventus in an International Champions Cup match on Sunday, which finished 3-2 to the north Londoners.

It took the Frenchman all of a minute to make an impact, when he intercepted a cross-field pass to advance forwards an play in Lucas Moura for a simple finish.

It was very much a typical piece of play from Ndombele, who is known for his all-action style.

The box-to-box ace will be expected to make such plays on a regular basis in the Premier League, and Mauricio Pochettino has every faith he can do that.

Speaking after the game in Singapore, he said (quoted by football.london): “All is new for him, but I think with the first touch of the ball he started to show the quality from him.

 

“It was amazing and you can see when he runs something can happen. He has the capacity to add to the team different things and I hope during the season he can help the team achieve all that they want.”

TBR’s view

Ndombele’s role in Moura’s goal was absolutely textbook Ndombele.

He is sure to be a hugely popular figure at the club thanks to his ability to perform multiple different roles in central midfield.

Despite being on the pitch for only a matter of minutes against Juventus, he showed exactly why the club have forked out so much money for him.
