Having gone into the game with a comfortable lead – at least on paper – from the first leg, and naming a pretty strong side out in Croatia, Spurs were left humiliated as they eventually lost in extra time thanks to a hat-trick by Mislav Orsic.
And speaking after the game to BT Sport, Lloris labelled the performance of the players ‘a disgrace’ and that the defeat was ‘more than painful, and we are all responsible for that,’ before going on to open up about a few home truths about the state of the club and the attitude of some of the players.
His comments were relayed to the fans via the @HotspurRelated Twitter page, where many people flocked to show their support for his comments, as they all agreed that something needed to be done to get them back on track for their big ambitions as a club:
“”The team at the moment is just a reflection of what’s going on in the club. Lack of the basics and fundamentals ” Wow that says it all really. The club is a mess right now. We know it, Hugo knows it, everyone knows it”
Whether that means changing the players, or changing the man in the dugout, you’d be surprised if there weren’t major changes coming soon.
