Tottenham spent 110 billion won, but it ended up being a scam.
He was unable to adapt to the tempo of the Premier League and did not stand out at Tottenham.

Even his weight was an issue after his loan move, but after his contract with Tottenham was terminated, he lost his weight and found a new team.
French media ‘Foot Mercato’ reported on July 3, 2024, “Ndombele has returned to the ideal weight to play on the pitch.

He is more eager than ever to show his experience.
“Following the termination of his contract with Tottenham, he has decided to join OGC Nice in the French Ligue 1,” he announced.

Tottenham’s ambitious Ndombele

Ndombele was an ambitious project for Tottenham after finishing second in the UEFA Champions League.
Coach Mauricio Pochettino was attracted to Ndombele, who was quite active at Olympique Lyonnais.

Tottenham invested 65 million pounds (approximately 114 billion won), the club’s highest transfer fee ever, to recruit Ndombele.
He was responsible for the highest transfer fee in the club’s history and a large salary.

He was treated ‘at the level of Harry Kane’, receiving a higher salary than Son Heung-min, who was a key player in the team.
Coach Pochettino tried to utilize Ndombele’s brilliant forward passing and de-pressing ability.

However, he was sacked in November 2019 due to poor performance, and lost the opportunity to play under coach Jose Mourinho.

Ndombele unable to adapt to Premier League tempone

He didn’t quite adapt to the Premier League tempo either.
Coach Mourinho also ordered Ndombele to train separately when the Premier League schedule was halted due to the new coronavirus.

He tried to mold himself into a Premier League fit player, but his form did not improve and he suffered from muscle injuries.
Tottenham acknowledged the failure of Ndombele and attempted to pursue a complete transfer after loaning him out.

He was sent on loan to his former team, Olympique Lyonnais, and Naples, where Kim Min-jae played, but the complete transfer was not successful.
He played 40 games for Naples and was sold for an outright transfer fee.

At Galatasaray (Turkiye), his last loan, he even gained weight.
According to the British media ‘Daily Mail’, he got into an argument with the director after ordering a hamburger late at night.

He maintained his fat body by gaining 6 kg from his previous weight.
Tottenham, who wanted to sell Ndombele somehow, offered to completely sign him for a transfer fee of less than 10 billion won.

However, it was absurd to recruit a player who could not even manage himself properly.

Ndombele’s new challenge

Tottenham’s counteroffer did not work, and they ended up crying and terminating Ndombele’s contract.
With one year remaining on his contract, he was released as a free agent (FA) and no transfer fee was incurred.

Ndombele lost a lot of weight to take on a new challenge and decided to join OGC Nice under general manager Florian Morris, whom he had a close relationship with.
Nice is a fairly decent team in the French Ligue 1.

Last season, they ranked 5th in the French Ligue 1 and advanced to the UEFA Europa Conference League.
The point difference with AS Monaco, who finished second in Ligue 1, was only 12 points.

From Ndombele’s perspective, it is worth being motivated enough.
