Yves Bissouma could get immediate Tottenham ban after red card suspension  due to bizarre technicality | talkSPORT

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Yves Bissouma was sent off just before half-time in Saturday’s Premier League game at Luton Town.

Bissouma was initially booked in the 39th minute after committing Tottenham’s first foul of the game by bringing down Chiedozie Ogbene in the center of the pitch.

He was then shown a second yellow card in first-half added time for diving.

Bissouma threw himself to the ground in an attempt to win a free-kick 20 yards from goal but referee John Brooks was not fooled.

The score was 0-0 when Bissouma left the field.

Spurs then defied their numerical disadvantage in the second half to win 1-0.

Micky van de Ven scored the winner – his first goal for Tottenham – following James Maddison’s fifth assist of the season.

Bissouma first yellow card of Saturday’s game was his fifth of the season, meaning he had already secured a one-game suspension before he was sent off.

His red card means he will be now banned for Tottenham’s next game – at home against Fulham – and will effectively still be on four yellow cards once he returns from that suspension.

 

Therefore, Bissouma will be banned for one game again after his next yellow card.

Report details manager’s beef with Tottenham loanee as burger causes fiery feud

Tanguy Ndombele is reportedly feuding with Galatasaray manager Okan Buruk for his lack of fitness, and the midfielder ordering a burger at the team hotel has escalated things.

Ndombele’s struggled to find his feet during the last few years of his career. After joining Spurs for £63million in 2019, he failed to have the desire impact, and while he’s still owned by the north London outfit, he’s played just 91 games for them.

He’s now into his third loan spell away from Tottenham in as many seasons, having moved to Galatasaray this summer after spells at Lyon and then Napoli.

Neither party will be relishing the midfielder’s spell in Turkey so far. Indeed, Ndombele has played 123 minutes across all competitions so far this term.

A report from Turkish outlet Fotospor suggests his lack of fitness is one of the main reasons for that. It’s stated Galatasaray manager Buruk is waiting for Ndombele to ‘lose excess weight and for his fat percentage to reach a reasonable level.’

That’s as he was apparently too heavy when he joined the club, and they want him to be 75 kilograms. However, fuel has been added to the fire regarding the Frenchman being overweight after an incident which followed his 10-minute Champions League cameo against Bayern Munich.

Indeed, it’s said that when he arrived back at the team hotel after that match, he ordered a burger, despite the fact he’s supposed to eat healthy meals prepared at the facility, as, presumably, are all the other players.
