Tottenham tragic loss to the C1 Cup
Fans expect the 1-0 loss in the first round of the Champions League 1/8 round to motivate Tottenham to play better in the march to RB Leipzig. However, the army led by Jose Mourinho also showed a more frail face when receiving a 0-3 defeat, thereby becoming a former runner-up.
After the match, the British media simultaneously pointed the nose for criticism at Tottenham with extremely heavy words. The Daily Mail commented that no miracle had happened, no impressive comeback in Germany, nor a miraculous comeback in the second half. Tottenham lost in the worst possible way. Even, this page affirms “the pressure on Mourinho’s chair is getting bigger after the shameful defeat on German soil”.
Meanwhile, The Sun blamed goalkeeper Hugo Lloris and said that two-thirds of the goals that Tottenham must receive stem from the definitive defeats of the French superstar.
Mirror newspaper reported pictures of coach Mourinho and his students left the field, accompanied by an apology to Tottenham fans of Dele Alli for Tottenham suffered heavy losses in force but we can not take that as a reason. They still had a good squad, they can swim upstream but they can’t. He is sorry for the fans who went to Germany.
Goal page launched a series of embarrassing statistics of Mourinho but also expressed sympathy with “The Special One” in the context, Tottenham lacks many pillars like Harry Kane, Son Heung Min. They said that Mourinho had just suffered the most severe defeat in his C1 career, losing 3 matches in a row for the first time and going through the longest series of no wins (6 matches, 4 losses – 2 losses). The club was also the second most conceded club in the Premier League.
Now the London representative is facing a tough battle for Champions League qualification. Mourinho is struggling to get good outcomes with a squad destroyed by injury and out of faith.
