Andy Cole praised Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Tanguy Ndombele. Cole believes that the 23-year-old France international is now showing why Tottenham paid a lot of money for him.
The Premier League club signed the youngster from Lyon in the summer of 2019 for a transfer fee of £53.8 million.
Cole said: “I was watching him play recently for Tottenham, and he has been one of Tottenham’s best performers. That pass he put in yesterday for Son’s goal, that’s the quality he has shown.
“He is very comfortable when he receives the ball, he can play one or two-touch football, he can go past someone, he can create chances, that’s why they paid all that money for him. You can see it now.”
Ndombele did not have the best of seasons in 2019-20, but the France international has established himself as an important player for Tottenham this campaign. According to WhoScored, the Frenchman has made seven starts and two substitute appearances in the Premier League for Tottenham so far this season, scoring one goal and providing one assist in the process.
