Inside Tanguy Ndombele and Daniel Levy’s private Spurs showdown talks

It’s the show that has gripped football fans up and down the country – but on Monday, Amazon’s All or Nothing Tottenham documentary will release the final three episodes.

We’ve already seen intense talks between Spurs boss Jose Mourinho and players including Eric Dier and Danny Rose and the final trio of shows will feature similar.

The Amazon cameras are set to focus on crunch talks between Tanguy Ndombele and chairman Daniel Levy, with the player having concerns about a lack of playing time.

Ndombele had a tough first season in the Premier League, with injuries limiting the club record signing’s ability to impress.

In fact, from Mourinho’s appointment in November of last year, the Frenchman started just five league games, with the midfielder coming in for public criticism.

Back in March, the Portuguese head coach slammed the 23-year-old’s performance after he was taken off at half-time vs Burnley.

"My thinking was that in the first half we didn't have a midfield. Simple as that,” he said.

"Of course I'm not speaking about Skipp because Skipp's a kid of 19-years-old that played two hours of football in the last day. I'm not critical with Skipp at all, at all, Because I don't want another question about the same story, I'm not going to run away and I have to say that Tanguy had enough time to come to a different level."

And now, we will see the player in a meeting with Levy, who had just spoken to Mourinho himself.

Football.London have outlined the talks that can be seen on the latest episode, please note, there are spoilers ahead.

"For three months I trained hard," Ndombele told Levy. "Everybody says I trained really well, but if I don't play it means there must be something else."

Levy replies: "Many players in their first season, coming from overseas, found it difficult.

"It is normal. Moussa [Sissoko], obviously he knows him well, he came to Tottenham and was very disappointing in the early period.

"I said to him 'Look I know you're a better player than you are showing, but you have to decide what's in your head'. The nice thing about Moussa is that he's an absolute fighter. He was not prepared to leave the club."

The French midfielder then said: "I'm a fighter. I've always fought. I'm here today because I fought. I have never given up in football or in life."

Levy then tells Ndombele though his interpreter: "We the club and the manager, we both believe he has the talent. He has to unlock it. Only he can turn this around."

In a later scene, Ndombele is seen with Sissoko and Serge Aurier, where he reveals his difficulties in his maiden season in England.

"It's been complicated," he admitted. "I was injured a lot. It's been a season of adaptation, but it's been okay, you guys have been there to help me.

"It's complicated when you change country. I left France and I left my family to come here. Then it's not easy when you change environment. The training it's a change in intensity and even the matches.

"You have to adapt to a new life and it hasn't been easy so far, but that's how it is."

The final three episodes of All or Nothing Tottenham Hotspur are released on Monday on Amazon Prime Video.
