[Tanguy Ndombele says his first experience of Premier League football was more intense than what he was used to in Ligue 1] As I have said, I am not used to scoring, so, it’s good for me and for the team. The most important thing is that we won today. It was difficult for me. The football moves quicker here, there is more intensity. In France, often when you win the ball you try to calm the 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

[Tanguy Ndombele admits the pace of the Premier League has presented his biggest challenge since completing a club-record €60 million move to Tottenham] Between Tottenham and Lyon there’s not really a great deal of difference. They are both teams that play with the ball. The big difference between the Premier League and Ligue 1 is the speed. Here in the Premier League it is always a fast paced game. The players drive forward, but in France there are periods of calm. That is the big difference

[Ndombele has been slotted straight into Mauricio Pochettino’s side] I’m not the kind of person who sets themselves any limits. We are going to try to go as far as we can and try to achieve something. The season is long and I hope we can achieve to the best of our abilities

[Ndombele believes he is well placed to aid the Tottenham cause] Things have been going well. Everyone has given me a warm welcome, the fans have welcome me too, so yes things are going well. Everybody has welcomed me into the team, that is the most important thing when you are a new arrival. Everything is going well so far

[Tottenham midfielder Tanguy Ndombele says he knows he has to keep moving forward as a player, or he risks being forgotten] I’m staying focused, I’m trying to move forward, but always knowing that things can go backwards quickly. Maybe in five years we will not talk about me anymore. In football there are always little gems that appear every year. I still watch Ligue 1; at Rennes there is the youngster [Eduardo] Camavinga who is 16 years old. That’s why I say that we must always stay focused

[On a day-to-day basis, though, Ndombele is concentrating on his own self-improvement, and he knows a record transfer fee isn’t enough to consider himself a success] You never know in football, it’s about humility. You see big players like Messi or Ronaldo, they have five Ballons d’Or and they still want more. I just signed for Tottenham, I don’t have the right to be satisfied, I still want more. I was told that I was a little too nonchalant. I’m trying to improve it. Whether it’s in a match, in training, even in the way I walk, I am trying to improve myself
