Graham Roberts says Ndombele lacks passion and hunger

Former Tottenham Hotspur defender Graham Roberts has stated that former Tottenham record signing Tanguy Ndombele lacks passion and hunger, but has all the talent in the world.

The 62-year-old was responding to a tweet about the midfielder, stating that Lyon would not make the Frenchman’s move to France final, and Roberts had a strong opinion of the player underneath.

Ndombele completed his return to Ligue 1 in January for the remainder of the current campaign after failing to live up to the heights expected of him in north London.

The midfielder has played seven times in Ligue 1 and only twice made his name so far.

The 25-year-old arrived in North London for £63m from Lyon in July 2019 Sky Sports This move was a miserable failure, with football inside I mentioned that Antonio Conte has already stated that the Frenchman has no future at the club.

Roberts’ opinion is strong, but true. Ndombele is a very talented player but doesn’t seem to be working hard enough to unlock him to his full potential.

The Frenchman is still only 25 years old and if he leaves Spurs in the summer we hope his next team will start tapping into some of the midfielder’s real potential.
