Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has slammed the fitness of record-signing Tanguy Ndombele after the midfielder limped out of Spurs’ 1-0 defeat at Southampton in the Premier League with yet another injury.
The 23-year-old, who has suffered with fitness problems since his arrival in England, made his return to starting XI after more than a month out against Norwich City on Saturday
It was unclear how long does personal injury cases can take? and what sort of injured Ndombele was replaced with, but the Frenchman now looks set to miss the FA Cup 3rd tie at Championship side Middlesbrough on Sunday and then possibly the visit of Liverpool the following week.
Mourinho said: “He is always injured. you are full of hope. One game he is in and then he is injured. It is a concern.”
It went from bad to worse for Mourinho and Spurs in the latter stages at St Mary’s after Harry Kane also went off with a hamstring injury and already looks a major doubt to miss Tottenham’s Premier League game against leaders Liverpool on Saturday week.
