A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have praised Declan Rice after his complimentary comments on Spurs ace Tanguy Ndombele.
The 24-year-old is in amazing form at present, his maiden-season issues at Tottenham now a distant memory.
Ndombele was especially outstanding against Sheffield United on Sunday afternoon, his performance lauded by peers and pundits alike.
Spurs ran out 3-1 winners at Bramall Lane and the hosts had no answer to Ndombele’s passing, link-up play and engine.
The Frenchman capped off his great display with a spectacular third goal, an improvised lob over Aaron Ramsdale for Tottenham’s third goal.
And Rice says Ndombele is a player he always tipped for success in the Premier League, also sharing how fondly the Spurs players on England duty talk about him.
“It’s taken him a year to adapt for whatever season, but he’s so silky, he’s so good and all the Spurs boys in England say he’s unbelievable as well.”
Plenty of Spurs fans praised Rice’s comments and, given his quality, it wasn’t long before some joked about the prospect of him becoming Ndombele’s teammate:
