The Italian manager took the reigns at Tottenham Hotspur earlier in the week and opened his account with a 3-2 victory in the Europa Conference League over Dutch side Vitesse.
Will Conte get the best out of Ndombele?
However, speaking on the podcast, Horncastle picked the 24-year-old out as the player in which he feels the new Spurs boss will be relishing the opportunity to work with.
“I think this is probably the story of every Spurs podcast since he’s been at Spurs. But I’m interested to see what [Conte] can get out of Tanguy Ndombele, because I look at the player and I think he’s everything that Conte would kind of desire in a midfield player.”
TIF Thoughts on Ndombele’s future…
It will be interesting to see which way Ndombele’s future at Spurs pans out now Conte is the new man in the dugout considering he was reportedly looking to leave in the summer.
Conte is believed to be a long-term admirer of the Frenchman so we are intrigued to see how their relationship develops at Tottenham.
Ndombele now has just under four years remaining on his deal at Spurs so the Londoners could potentially still draw back some of the record-breaking funds they spent on the midfielder if Ndombele fails to kick on under Conte.
