Spurs fans react on Twitter to Tanguy Ndombele’s display

A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to laud Tanguy Ndombele after the midfielder produced an impressive cameo during Spurs’ Champions League defeat to RB Leipzig on Wednesday – but there is also a clear sense of frustration emanating from the supporters.

It is no secret that the 23-year-old has struggled with his fitness in recent times. He has not played 90 minutes since December. So it was little surprise to see him start Wednesday’s tie on the bench.

Here is what some of the fans made of Ndombele’s performance…
