Fifth in the first league of Slovenia. One win in 11 games. No points in the history of the club if we count European competitions. And yet, Mura killed the giant! Antonio Conte had players such as Harry Kane and Tanguy Ndombele play in the starting 11, then the guys who were supposed to be the new planetary stars like Dele Alli and Ryan Sessegnon, and the names of Brian Gil and Davinson Sanchez hinted at an easy game in Maribor ...
In the end, Conte had to send heavy artillery in the form of Heung Min Son, Emil Hojbjerg, and Lucas Moura to save the matter. It was not worth it, Tottenham was embarrassed and lost 1: 2. After the match, Antonio Conte admitted that only now, three weeks after coming to Spurs bench, he realizes how many problems have accumulated in London.
And although the blame for that lies the least on the Italian, it is a small consolation for the embarrassed fans. Former Tottenham midfielder Jamie O’Hara depicts the mood between them. “Shameful party. Shocking on every level.
The very fact that Tottenham had to introduce Son, Moura, Hojbjerg... That is humiliating. Mura is a Slovenian team. Our five-league players could play with them. Shame, "O'Hara thundered.
He calls out players
Then by name ...
"Doherty, Ndombele, Dele Alli, and Davinson Sanchez were absolutely shocking. They should be ashamed after a game like this. Some of them should not wear the Tottenham jersey." "This is a Conference League game, you have to win to get through, you have to impress the new coach Antonio Conte ...
And they walk like in the park as if they are too good for this game. Absolute shame. " Former players rarely attack their successors like this, but O’Hara was visibly furious. “Put them away. Take them off the payroll, we don't want them here.
They are pathetic. They are not good enough, they are not ready enough and they have no desire to wear a Tottenham jersey." "We paid £ 60,000,000 to Ndombele. Davinson Sanchez 40,000,000, Sessegnon 30,000,000, Doherty 15,000,000.
Are we talking about players more expensive than 100,000,000 and so they play against Mura?" "Conte has to do something fast. How many coaches have they already fired? Pochettino, Mourinho, Nuno Espirito Santo? I don't think Conte will tolerate that. Get them out of the club, send them on loan, whatever, they just aren't good enough. "
