Dele Alli has apologised to Tottenham's supporters after they crashed out of the Champions League following a terrible performance against RB Leipzig on Tuesday evening.
Spurs went into the second leg knowing a 2-0 win would be enough to secure them a place in the quarter finals. However, a first-half brace from Marcel Sabitzer quickly put the tie to bed before the break, before Emil Forsberg added a late third.
In truth, José Mourinho's hodge-podge of a team never troubled Leipzig and Dele - who played 90 minutes in an unfamiliar centre forward role - offered no excuses for their meek display.
"We have to apologise to the fans. They travelled all this way and to go out and lose like that... They deserve better."— Football on BT Sport (@btsportfootball) March 10, 2020
An honest Dele on Tottenham's Champions League exit, footballing mentality and fight to salvage their season...
"After the first one went in it didn’t change much but we conceded too many chances as a team. It’s hard to come back from those two goals. We had to show our maturity and fight and we didn’t do that."
Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Steven Bergwijn were all absent from the Spurs squad through injury but Dele refused to use that as an excuse for the team's struggles.
