Tottenham midfielder Ndombele: Mourinho and I have had difficult moments

Tottenham midfielder Tanguy Ndombele admits not getting along with manager Jose Mourinho last season.

The pair fell out, but have since mended their differences.

"I've got a good relationship with the coach," says Ndombele. "We speak together, we laugh together. And the more difficult moments last season we've left behind us. We're now both trying our hardest to help the team.

"I find myself working harder in training and in the matches. But above all I think I've just settled in better. It's true that the last season was difficult for me - to change leagues like that, it isn't easy. But now I feel like I'm really settling in better and I really hope that I'm on the right track for the future."
