Levy has 'saved Ndombele's career' after details of Tottenham 'crisis talks' emerge - pundit
Daniel Levy deserves huge credit for saving the “sensational” Tanguy Ndombele’s Tottenham career.
So says ex-Premier League goalkeeper Paddy Kenny, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about “crisis talks” between the pair.
The meeting between the two was held in 2020 and filmed as part of Amazon’s All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur documentary series.
Ndombele was struggling to make an impact at Spurs under Jose Mourinho at the time but has since worked his way back into the starting XI.
As quoted by The Telegraph on 24 October, the Frenchman revealed it is “thanks to that meeting” that he is still at the club.
The 24-year-old midfielder, a £54million signing from Lyon in 2019, will soon be under the supervision of world-class manager Antonio Conte.

The Italian has agreed terms with Spurs and could take training today (2 October), as revealed yesterday by Football Insider.
Kenny hailed Levy for his “personal touch” in reaching out to Ndombele back in 2020.
He told Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams: “If he’s made a player feel comfortable in those crisis talks, then that’s brilliant.
“He is still a young lad really and he’s playing at a massive club. So for Levy to get involved with that personal touch is great.
“He has saved his Tottenham career with that man-management. Some people need that kind of approach.
“It’s nice to see Ndombele play week in, week out as well because he’s a sensational player when he’s on it.”
