BBC pundit Danny Murphy has suggested that Mauricio Pochettino’s decision over where new signing Tanguy Ndombele is playing in the starting eleven might just not be the right one.
The Tottenham Hotspur manager was not able to bring in any new faces during last summer’s transfer window but things were slightly better this year.
Pochettino was able to secure the services of Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon, in a deal which saw the Frenchman become the most expensive signing in the club’s history.
The 22-year-old has slotted straight into the Spurs line-up in what has been a roller-coaster start to the new season.
Ndombele even managed to score his first goal for his new club on his competitive debut against Aston Villa, as his vital strike prompted a comeback from Tottenham in the 3-1 win at home.
For Danny Murphy, the midfielder is meant to be playing in a more advanced role than where Pochettino has deployed him at the moment.
“Ndombele is playing central midfield in a two, maybe it’s not his best position. Maybe he’s more attacking. Protect your back four, but no.” he said, as quoted by HITC
