Supporters of Tottenham Hotspur have been flocking to a Twitter post which was shared to social media by Alasdair Gold.

On Friday, the journalist relayed quotes which were made by Jose Mourinho in a press conference (per Alasdair Gold).

While the press conference was to preview Spurs’ clash with Arsenal on Sunday, the quotes were Mourinho discussing Tanguy Ndombele’s performance in the 0-0 draw with Bournemouth.

As per Gold’s tweet, he said: “[The] feeling was we are going to have the ball, space to play and the midfield players I had on the bench: [Oliver] Skipp, Gedson [Fernandes], Harvey [White], Tanguy I thought he was the one with the talent to move the ball. He was the same level as the team, not better or worse.”

Lots of The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium faithful then flocked to this to air their thoughts.

How well do you remember Heung-Min Son's time with Spurs? - The Lilywhites signed Son from which Bundesliga side?

For his role in the 0-0 draw after coming off the bench, Football.london awarded Ndombele a 6/10 performance rating and stated that he ‘instantly upped Tottenham’s tempo’.

Do you agree with what Jose Mourinho had to say?

No, he was very wrong

No, he was very wrong

Yes, he got that right

Yes, he got that right

Across the season as a whole, the French midfielder has been in decent, if uninspiring form, as he has picked up a 6.71/10 average rating from 21 league outings (per WhoScored).

However, supporters were keen to disagree with what Mourinho had said about the middleman following the clash with the Cherries.

As can be seen in what these Spurs fans had to say, it was clear that they disagreed with what Mourinho said and they felt that Ndombele was a cut above the rest.
