Spurs Fans Have Had Enough Of Midfielder After Morecambe Antics

Spurs Fans Have Had Enough Of Midfielder After Morecambe Antics

Spurs survived an almighty scare this afternoon, with a flurry of lates goals sparing their blushes in their FA Cup tie against Morecambe.

The League One side took the lead in the first half of the match, with Cork's Anthony O'Connor volleying home from a corner.

That lead was retained right up until the closing stages of the game, with goals in the final 15 minutes from Harry Winks, Lucas Moura, and Harry Kane sparing the home side's blushes and booking their place in the next round.

Despite the late comeback, not all Spurs fans will come away from the ground pleased, with one player in particular the source of their frustrations.

With Antonio Conte's men still trailing with 20 minutes to go, the Italian opted to make a number of substitutes. That included replacing midfielder Tanguy Ndombele, who did not seem happy with the decision.

With his team chasing the game, he opted to exit the pitch in the slowest manner possible. Compare that to teammate Bryan Gil, who was also taken off during this period.

The home crowd were not happy, booing the player off the pitch. In fact, some members of the Spurs side even had to encourage him to hurry up and get to the sideline.

This could well be the last straw for the Frenchman, who has done nothing of note since joining Spurs in a £54million deal in the summer of 2019.

He has repeatedly been linked with a move away in the time that has followed and is reportedly unhappy with life in North London.

Many Tottenham fans have now seen enough from him.

Considering how much Antonio Conte demands from his players, Ndombele will have to make some serious adjustments to his attitude if he is to last under his management.

When you look at his tenure at the club thus far, that is looking very unlikely.
