José Mourinho: “If you have talent, you have a chance

Manager of Tottenham Hotspur, José Mourinho, claimed that he still thinks in record signing Tanguy Ndombele, adding that the Frenchman can turn things around still.

Marred by fitness and form problems, Ndombele has undergone a difficult debut season in England and just finds himself benched by Mourinho, though rumors of a gap in their relationship been released.

Pierre-Emile Højbjerg, of Southampton, has been applauded as a possible substitute for the disturbed Frenchman, who is told to have Mourinho that he plans to leave this summer, but the manager retained that Ndombele still has time to get it together.

Mourinho said of Ndombele (via The Telegraph). “If you don’t have talent, you don’t have any chance,” “If you have talent, you have a chance.”

“Football is full of players who have made difficult starts and then ended well. When Luka Modrić arrived at Real Madrid after six months he was labeled the worst signing in their history. A few months later he was a champion, then a few months later he was a European champion and then a few months later he has voted the best player in the world. So when the talent is there many things that can happen with adaptation.”

Since the restart, So far this season, Ndombele has played only 12 Premier League matches and has been an unused alternative in both Spurs’ matches, but Mourinho claims that getting good players on the bench is a reminder of the consistency of a squad.

“When you are a big club and you want to be a bigger club, you have lots of big players, you don’t have fix or six, 10 or 11, you have lots of very good players,” he added. “When you have lots of good players, you have lots of options.”

“You can face the season, you can face all the competitions and then the players, the fans, you the press, everyone has to understand that when you have lots of good players, you can only start matches with 11.”

“In many other clubs, it looks like it’s normal to have great players on the bench. You go to United, you go to Liverpool, you go to Real Madrid, you go to Barcelona, Bayern Munich has lots of top players on the bench. That is normal.”

“In Tottenham, what I feel is every time a top player is on the bench it’s a drama and the players have to understand that it’s not a drama. You have to understand it’s not a drama and everybody has to understand it’s not a drama.”
