Spurs midfielder Ndombele: I need time to adapt

Tanguy Ndombele admits it will take him a little while to adapt to the Premier League.

The Spurs midfielder made an impression on debut against Aston Villa on Saturday, scoring a wonderful equaliser in the 3-1 victory.

"As I have said, I am not used to scoring, so, it's good for me and for the team," Ndombele told Canal+.

"The most important thing is that we won today. It was difficult for me. The football moves quicker here, there is more intensity.

"In France, often when you win the ball you try to calm the play down, but here you try to push forward immediately. And I am going to try to adapt as quickly as possible.

"This is a nice squad, the young ones as well as the older ones, the squad seems quite harmonious, it is a squad that has gotten close over several years. I am just trying to integrate and do what is needed on the pitch."
