Spurs signing Ndombele: I'm no Pogba

Tottenham Hotspur's new record signing Tanguy Ndombele has quickly dismissed any link between his style of play and Paul Pogba's.

The Frenchman has been compared to the Manchester United man due to his ability to run with the ball at pace. He enjoyed an excellent season at Lyon and Spurs fought off competition from Barcelona and United to secure the services of the midfielder.

But Ndombele has laughed off comparisons with the Manchester United star, telling L'Equipe: "I have heard it all. I am here to make my own path.

"Paul has made his own in England. I am Tanguy: not the new [Michael] Essien; not the new Pogba."
