Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Tanguy Ndombele has revealed that he did give a potential move to Inter some thought.
The Frenchman drew strong links to Inter during the recent Summer transfer window with reports at the time suggesting he and Inter central defender Milan Skriniar could have been exchanged.
In the end no move came to fruition and Ndombele’s fortunes have turned around at the north London club in his second season with them after a rather difficult first season with the Lilywhites.
“Did I think about going to Inter? I asked myself whether I should leave or not but the president told me he wanted to keep me. This season is going pretty well, even with the manager,” Ndombele explained in an interview with French broadcaster Canal+, which was broadcast earlier on today.
The 23-year-old proceeded to speak on how things have changed, especially when it comes to his relationship with Spurs boss and former Inter manager Jose Mourinho.
“Everyone has put their ego aside. There are things I didn’t agree on, just as the coach didn’t agree on anything else. I made mistakes, but today it’s okay.
“Sometimes you can talk and argue with the manager, but you have to leave everything behind and move on. How did I convince Mourinho? I had to play more. I was able to show him that I am motivated, it is important.”
This season the former Lyon player has made 10 appearances across all competitions to date. In his time on the park, which totals just under 600 minutes, Ndombele has managed to score two goals.
