Tanguy Ndombele confirms ‘difficulty’ after Aston Villa

After the Aston Villa game, Tanguy Ndombele spoke to French broadcasters Canal Plus.

As translated by Get French Football News, Ndombele admitted that his first Premier League experience was tough.

Comparing Ligue 1 to the English top-flight, Ndombele said:

As I have said, I am not used to scoring, so, good for me and for the team. The most important thing is that we won today.

It is difficult for me. The football moves quicker here, there is more intensity.

In France, often when you win the ball you try to calm play down, but here you try to push forward immediately. And I am going to try to adapt as quickly as possible.

This is a nice squad, the young ones as well as the older ones, the squad seems quite harmonious, it is a squad that has gotten close over several years, I am just trying to integrate and do what is needed on the pitch.

For the record, Ndombele played 90 minutes against Villa.

However, just before the final whistle, the midfielder was subbed out of the game and replaced by Oliver Skipp.
