Will Harry Kane leave Tottenham next summer?
However, when Ricky Sacks tweeted out the article, it became clear that many Tottenham Hotspur fans didn’t share his sentiment:
[@RobGuesty] | The night Tanguy Ndombele stepped up and really announced himself at Spurs on the grandest stage.

In fact, it was pretty clear that many fans wholeheartedly disagreed, with some claiming that it is pretty impossible for a player to truly announce themselves on such a humiliating night, while others poked holes in the Frenchman’s individual performance – with the main criticism being that he trailed off as the game went on.
The 22-year-old summer signing lasted 64 minutes on the pitch, completing 2 dribbles, 1 of his 5 attempted tackles, 1 clearance, 1 interception, 2 key passes and 88% of his attempted passes, as per WhoScored.
A selection of Twitter reaction to the comment, including posts from disbelieving Spurs fans, can be seen below:
I’m not sure a 30 minute display in a 7-2 loss can ever count as ‘announcing’ yourself.

The night he stepped up and we let 7 goals in at home for the first time in our history

You do know we lost 7-2, right?

He was at fault for 1st goal Ricky and also for not tracking back or tackling v Olympiacos…didn`t really announce himself to me yet….still too languid, not alert enough or sensing danger

I am so confused, were you at the game? He at best had a good 10 minutes in total and then struggled to keep pace. He will come good it’s clear to see but it most definitely wasn’t a night where he announced himself.

Starts well in games then fades badly. Is he mentally not giving his all or is this a fitness thing? Hopefully the latter. I’m still not convinced he’s good enough to push us on – we’ve gone so far backwards this season. When Sissoko’s our best player we’ve got serious problems.

so wide of the mark… if that was stepping up maybe someone needs to check do we have a receipt
