Tottenham midfielder Ndombele: Pochettino methods caused my injury problems

Tottenham midfielder Tanguy Ndombele says his injury problems last season were due to former manager Mauricio Pochettino's methods.

Ndombele struggled with his fitness in the first months of his time in London after arriving from Lyon.

He recalled, “Pochettino's training is incredibly tough. I even called friends in France and said that I want to go back.

"There is no doubt that this kind of work played a role in my injuries.

"My body needed to adapt, this work caused a shock, which affected health problems."
