A coach’s appointment at a club mostly see some players trying to earn the coach’s trust while some will have to fight and work their way into the team, some might as well end up been frozen out of the team completely.
But when it comes to a perfectionist coach, who doesn’t dilly-dally with his work and keep expectations of the highest grade from his players, Jose Mourinho fits perfectly well into such frame of coach.
Mourinho’s time at various clubs in Spain, Italy and England had come along with numerous encounters with some players, which mostly led to freezing out any player not playing up to what is required of them, with very little success stories of giving a second chance to his players. Players like: Kevin De Bruyne, Mohamed Salah, Kaka, Luke Shaw and so on, are prime examples of Mourinho’s harsh treatment.
Jose Mourinho’s appointment at Tottenham came in-between the 2019/2020 season, where he had to replace Mauricio Pochettino, one of the club’s most impressive manager in the history.
Medias and fans attention were glued to see how Jose Mourinho (without preseason matches and his own signing) would be able to turn around the fortune of the club after their sudden decline in form and performance under his predecessor.
One of the victim of Mourinho’s expectations has notably been their summer marque recruit ‘Tanguy Ndombele‘.
Tanguy Ndombele signed for Tottenham Hotspur in a deal worth €62 million plus up to €10 million in add-ons after taking the French ligue 1 by storm with sublime and consistent performances.
Mourinho’s isn’t obviously hesitated to let his frustration out on any player that’s not playing up to his expectation and Ndombele has been a major victim of Portuguese’s harsh treatment.
Surprisingly with the latest revelation from the club, according to @gharrypratt, it was revealed that Mourinho would be willing to accord Ndombele an unusual second chance to make an impression at the club, noting that the Frenchman is a player of great quality and will be a genuine force for the club once he’s properly settled.
The Evening Standard reported an outdoor training session which was looked over by Jose Mourinho at Hadley Common in Barnet, with the presence of Ndombele & co.
Though the club had expressed their displeasure in their act after breaking the club’s lockdown rules.
But can this be a sign of something great for Tanguy Ndombele’s Tottenham future?
Fortunately, with Mourinho’s willingness to get the best out of the talented midfielder (Ndombele), soon enough, the fans might start to see the reward for the money spent for Ndombele’s signature.
