Mourinho Says Ndombele Did Not Want To Play Against Brighton

The absence of Tanguy Ndombele from the Spurs squad was one of the main talking points prior to his side's early Stephen's Day kick-off against Brighton.

According to Spurs manager Jose Mourinho, the midfielder's absence was not down to injury.

"I cannot say that he is injured because in five minutes we start a training session that you could watch from the stands and he will be training normally," Mourinho said in the post-match press conference after his team came from behind to beat Brighton.


"So I cannot say he is injured, I can say that yesterday he told me he was not feeling in condition to play the game, not based on injury but on fears of previous injuries that he has had since the start of the season, two, three or four muscular injuries and the feeling of not being ready to start the game.

"But I cannot say that he is injured, I can only say he is not in condition which is a different thing."

Ndombele has made just three appearances for Spurs since Mourinho took over as manager in mid-November. The 22-year-old joined Spurs during the summer from Lyon as a club record signing in a deal worth £55 million.
