Mourinho had publicly declared Ndombélé a scapegoat after the disappointing draw at Burnley FC last season. "We didn't have a midfield in the first half," complained the star coach after replacing Ndombélé halfway.
"I have to say that Tanguy had enough time to get to another level," added Mourinho: "A player with his potential, with his responsibility, has to give us more."
Ndombélé had moved from Olympique Lyon to Spurs for 60 million euros, but initially could not meet the expectations of him. (Ndombélé: "You have to get up again" )
Ndombélé admitted that the words hurt, but he took them to heart: "It is part of the game to get criticism. You have to get up again. This season I'm doing better on several fronts - most of all, I'm injury-free. "
The 24-year-old also stated that he had developed a "strong feeling" for what the coach wants. With Mourinho showing his tough side again in the face of the crisis, he has important advice for his teammates at Spurs.
"Obviously the coach can be pretty tough on people. But it's important that you accept his words and try to find the positive aspects in them - and not let the harshness of the message bother you," said Ndombélé.
In their win against West Brom on Sunday lunchtime with goals from Heung-Min Son and Harry Kane, the Spurs proved that they apparently got the message from Mourinho.
