Tottenham loanee Lenglet: Why I made slow start

Tottenham loanee Clement Lenglet has made an honest admission about his start at the club.

The Frenchman is on loan from Barcelona for the season, and was involved in the side's 0-0 draw against Eintracht Frankfurt in the Champions League.

After the game, the 27-year-old was asked about life in North London, where he has started five games for Tottenham since September.

"I'm good, I'm good. I was a little bit tired at the beginning of the season because the preparation was really tough and I have to adapt to the intensity of the Premier League and in this group," he told SPURSPLAY.

"Now I'm better, I'm going up and I still hope to go up during a long time."

"When you play away in the Champions League every point is important, but today we will come back in London with a different sensation because I think we can score a goal and can win the game," he added on the Champions League game with Frankfurt.

"We played a good game with a lot of intensity, duels and chances to score goals. Of course when you don't win you are always a bit not happy but it's a good point and now we have to do the job at home.

“Frankfurt is a good team. Last year I play against this team with Barcelona and it was really, really difficult – we lose at home. So, I can say with my experience this team is really good. We played a really good game with a lot of intensity, we win a lot of duels and we try to put this team in difficulty and I thought we did."
