Tottenham captain Lloris: Tanguy needs games, games, games

Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris has called on Tanguy Ndombele to make a bigger contribution.

Lloris called for his fellow Frenchman Ndombele to assume more responsibility in the dressing room and on the pitch, but says he has “no doubt" the maverick France midfielder will come good.

“Tanguy needs games, games, games, repetition of games," said the France captain.

“[He needs to] try to feel this responsibility because he's not a young player any more. And a player with his talent and quality must feel responsibility inside the changing room and the team.

“Honestly, I think he's ready, his mind is ready. He's here with a smile, he's connected with the team and that's the most important thing. Obviously, it's the manager's decision to play him or not play him, but I can feel his energy is back. And, for sure, he's going to perform. I have no doubt about that.

“With Tanguy, the first season, because of the language, it was sometimes frustrating with him to be not be able to talk with the others. Today, he's totally open and he can talk and joke and share moments. That's very important as a player, to feel connected to the team."
