After two transfer windows without any new signing, Tottenham Hotspur broke their transfer record by buying Tanguy Ndombele for $79 million.

And Argentinean coach Mauricio Pochettino has urged patience with their big-money signing.

“For him it’s difficult. We cannot expect too much,” Pochettino was quoted by Goal.

“We need to accept he needs time to adapt to first a new culture, a new country, new habits.”

“Of course it’s only him who arrived at the club and that makes it more difficult. When a few players are new they can help each other but it’s only him,” he added.

“We need to give him time but I am happy in the way he is adapting. He is open to improving and learning but needs time to [until we] see the best version of him.”
