Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, Tanguy Ndombele, has generously agreed to donate his private collection of pukka pies to hungry NHS workers in North London.
“People may say I’m selfish for having over ten thousand pies stashed away in my freezer during this difficult time,” Ndombele told reporters. “But I honestly bought them before the Coronavirus outbreak.
“I like to have at least four steak and kidney puddings on me at all times; you never know when hunger might strike. Sometimes, I’ll be on the way to training, or taking a breather during an actual match, and all of a sudden, I’ll fancy a snack.
“As a professional, you have to be prepared - and I always am.”
This isn’t the first time the Frenchman has been in the headlines since lockdown began. The 23-year-old was recently pictured jogging with Spurs manager, Jose Mourinho, in Barnet, breaking social distancing rules.
“I received a lot of criticism for that, with some people saying I should never have answered the door in the first place,” Ndombele commented. “But, in all fairness, I never would have answered the door if I hadn’t have thought it was my 2-for-Tuesdays Dominos delivery.
“Not that I was socialising or having people round for dinner; they call it “two for one” for a reason. And that reason, as far as I’m concerned, is that it’s two meals, for one person.”
Ndombele refused to comment on rumours that he has approximately two hundred thousand Dairylea Lunchables hidden in a secret underground pantry.
