José Mourinho lambasted his players’ attitudes and apologized to fans after Tottenham was humiliatingly eliminated from the Europa League.Your trip to Zagreb should have been after last week’s 2-goal win in the first leg Little more than a formality, but four days after losing in the North London derby, Spurs put in an anemic performance in perfect contrast to that of their hosts Mislav Orsic’s great hat-trick crowning a famous win for the Croatian champions
“I’m disappointed with the difference in attitudes between one team and the other” Mourinho said after the 3-2 aggregate defeat, “I’m sorry about my team” I belong to that team? is the team that not only brought the basics of football into play, but, I believe, the basics of life, namely respecting our jobs and giving everything
â € œI donâ € ™ t need any outside critics because I feel deeply hurt by what happened to my team I donâ € ™ t want to say more. On behalf of my team, I can only apologize to the Tottenham supporters, although some of them share my feelings and may not share emotionsâ ????
Mourinho went to the Dinamo dressing room after the game to congratulate the hosts on their deserved win. But he accused his own players of being unprofessional [Dinamo] played with a lot of desire I can call it professionalism because for me professionalism begins with the attitude â ???? he said, adding that he felt “more than sad” that his players “didn’t look like they were playing an important game”
This was a critical game for Spurs and their manager, however, on the only occasion that Mourinho, who is more used to the Champions League, won the trophy with Manchester United he had high hopes to do the same with Spurs who hired him for his award-winning pedigree but his squad has been ousted by a club making it to the quarter-finals of a European competition for the first time, Spursâ ???? Season Unravels The pressure to save pride by beating Manchester City in next month’s Carabao Cup final has risen You need to play a lot better
Spurs have played more games this season than any other team in the top five leagues in Europe This would be an excuse for their poor performance in Zagreb if they weren’t a very rich club with a squad to handle Mourinho made seven changes to the line-up that started with the Arsenal loss on Sunday but still started with nine players starting the first leg in which Spurs were two goals ahead but they never had control in this second leg and started so cautiously that it seemed to stimulate their opponents
Spurs showed little ingenuity, but control and dynamism were the qualities that were most lacking in the 35 In the 17th minute, Dinamo worked through them, helped by a slip by Davinson Sánchez, but Lovro Majer drilled far from the edge of the box. A minute later, Sánchez slipped to Spursâ ???? Rescue, the ball from Arijan Ademi hooks in front of the goal after a cute pass from Majer
Dinamo’s increasingly nimble attack left them open to counter-offensives. Spurs didn’t gather many, but Lucas Moura prepared Harry Kane for a chance just before the break. Goalkeeper Dominik Livakovic rushed out to stifle the shot
Tottenham remained sluggish after the break as Dinamo continued to hum forward Ademi stayed in 52 Minute free from a corner, but sent a header down into the arms of Hugo Lloris
Gareth Bale was introduced before the hour when Mourinho tried to give Tottenham more boost, but within moments they fell back on a beautiful goal. Majer broke through Spursâ ???? Pedestrians midfield and went to Orsic on the left winger faked Serge Aurier by cutting back on his right foot and rolling a delicious shot from the corner of the box into the far corner of the net
Mourinho tossed Giovani Lo Celso and Tanguy Ndombele to try to reverse the flow but a Dinamo substitute, Iyayi Atiemwen, made a bigger impression as he engaged in an intricate move to feed Orsic, who was in the box shot when Moussa Sissoko dawdled and then swept the equalizer into the net from 10 meters
Spurs had to rally to save their campaign They almost made it in the minute, but Kévin Théophile’s Catherine cleared a Kane header off the line to force extra time Dinamo had 30 minutes to gain fame and Spurs half an hour to stave off disgrace The game was tense and chaotic Both sides had chances, but the hosts thought more clearly and acted more sharply
In the first minute of the second extra time, Orsic finished his superb hat-trick after receiving the ball more than 30 yards away, zigzagging between Aurier, Sissoko and Ndombele, crowning the run with an explosive finish, taking the Ball thrown past Lloris from 20 meters
Mourinho said Orsic’s goals were no surprise that Spurs ???? Analysts had warned the players I prepared my players to play against Orsic and gave them all the information about him so I don’t know what else to sayâ ????
