Tottenham insider 'names and shames' Ndombele and teammate for putting Nuno at 'huge disadvantage'
Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso are serial failures putting Nuno at a “huge disadvantage” at Tottenham.
That is according to Spurs insider John Wenham, who regularly breaks news about the club on his Lilywhite Rose social media channels.
Wenham delivered his verdict on underperforming players in the aftermath of last Sunday’s 3-0 home defeat against Chelsea.
Spurs started the match brightly before being overwhelmed by the Premier League leaders and Wenham is especially scathing of the contributions of Ndombele and Lo Celso.
“Naturally, the usual suspects faded against Chelsea,” he told Football Insider.
“It was those players who are simply unable to complete 90 minutes, they are Lo Celso and Ndombele.

“We paid the best part of £110million for the pair of them and we are three seasons and four managers in and they have all had the same issue.
“Lo Celso is replaced every single game without fail on 63 minutes and Ndombele is the same, if he even plays.
“The issue that brings is we go into games having to guarantee two of our subs. That puts the manager at a huge disadvantage.
“Lo Celso hasn’t completed 90 minutes for Tottenham since back in July of 2020 and Ndombele has only completed a few games since he joined.
“If I had to name and shame some players it would be them because as always they can’t complete 90 minutes, it’s unacceptable.”
Ndombele, the Spurs record signing, had been handed his first Premier League appearance of the season against Chelsea after being frozen out of the first four matches.
Lo Celso was also starting his first league match of the campaign although he had been a sub in his two previous games.
