Antonio Conte clearing the decks at Tottenham with two first-team stars set to depart in January

Posted by

Sunday afternoon’s FA Cup Third Round win against Morecambe must’ve been a real eye-opener for Tottenham manager, Antonio Conte.

Up until the point that Harry Winks fired home an astonishing free-kick which opened the floodgates for the home side, Spurs were facing an embarrassing elimination.

What, perhaps, may have disappointed the Italian more was the attitude of Tanguy Ndombele who, when substituted, ambled across the turf before heading straight down the tunnel, incurring the boos of the White Hart Lane faithful.

According to respected journalist, Fabrizio Romano, the player is likely to be on his way in January, with the North London outfit looking for ways of easing him out of the club.

He isn’t likely to be the only departure either, with Romano also suggesting that Steven Bergwijn will go too, and Ajax and one of many clubs looking to secure his signature.

January represents the first opportunity for Conte to really be able to mould the squad into something approaching what he requires.

It’s unclear at this point which players he might look to acquire in their stead, though in order to bring his type of player through the door, it’s clear as to who he wants to dispense with.

A sea change in results isn’t likely to happen overnight, but if Conte can keep onside with the Spurs fans and they give him the time he requires, his winning mentality will surely mean that success will follow in due course.

Success that’s been long overdue for Tottenham.

  1. Just reading that papa sarr, the wonder kid that we have loaned back to metz, (who are pretty much bottom of their league despite having this wonderkid), have dropped him from the team
    Due to his bad attitude. Sound like anyone else we currently have on the books? Not sure if his transfer is reversible, or it sounds like we have bought more trouble- we never learn!!!
