Many Tottenham Hotspur fans have destroyed Tanguy Ndombele after a photo emerged of him in training with Moussa Sissoko on the club’s official Twitter page.
From the image, it arguably looks as if the 23-year old is struggling to keep up with Sissoko who has resumed to training after an injury setback. Many fans were appreciative of the Frenchman’s return, but it was Ndombele that grabbed their attention the most.
The central midfielder has come under criticism from Spurs fans this season and even publicly by Jose Mourinho and the likes of Jamie Carragher, all questioning his output. The fact that it looks like he is struggling to keep up with Sissoko in training has not helped his cause with the fans, though it, of course, does not tell the full story.
Ndombele has played 27 times for Spurs in all competitions this campaign, scoring two goals and providing four assists, according to Transfermarkt.
These fans compared the two French midfielders on Twitter, with many of them suggesting that Sissoko looks fitter than Ndombele despite the former only just returning to training. One fan even claimed that on ‘one leg’, Sisssoko looks fitter:

Why does he already look fitter than N’Dombele

Sissoko needs to take Ndombele out running with him. Imagine Sissoko’s engine with Ndombele’s technical ability.
