After being knocked out of the Carabao Cup by Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur returned to winning ways this weekend by securing a 3-1 victory over Morecambe in the third round of the FA Cup.
While the scoreline may suggest otherwise, it was a disappointing performance from the North London giants as they struggled to break down the League One outfit. In fact, the hosts were trailing for a large portion of the game before a late flurry from the attackers saw them score three goals in the space of 14 minutes.
Quite unsurprisingly, the fans were not impressed by the performances of some of the Tottenham players, none more so than Tanguy Ndombele.
In a video posted by KorrectSport TV on YouTube, the Frenchman was seen booed by his own sets of supporters when he made way for Oliver Skipp in the 69th minute.
Tottenham Hotspur were still trailing at the time, struggling to offer any creativity or invention in the final third. Ndombele, who started the game in midfield alongside Giovani Lo Celso and Harry Winks, was one of the worst performers on the pitch, as he was seen lumbering the whole game without providing any real quality to the proceedings.
Spurs fans made their frustrations known by booing Ndombele as he made way for Skipp. The incident should fuel the speculation surrounding the Frenchman’s uncertain future at the club.
Having started in only one game under Antonio Conte, it is apparent the former Olympique Lyon starlet is not included in the Italian’s first-team plans, with the player himself not showing any desire to win back his place in the side. It could potentially lead to a January exit, especially amid interest from AS Roma, coached by former Spurs boss Jose Mourinho.
Ndombele did enjoy a bright spell in North London under the Portuguese tactician last season, so it will be interesting to see whether the two can reunite in Rome during the second half of the campaign.
