Tottenham Hotspur were knocked out of the European League last-16 after losing 3-0 to Dynamo Zagreb on Thursday night.
Tottenham advanced in the first leg 2-0 after a one-sided confrontation in London. However, they gave a lackluster performance at night, as they were knocked out of competition.
Mislav Ursic scored a great goal and completed a wonderful transformation in the second leg of the champions of Croatia.
After the match, Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris described the exit as a “disgrace” and said the result was a reflection of “what is happening at the club.”
The French goalkeeper gave no excuse after the match and suggested to BT Sport that there are problems on and off the field at the club.
He looked miserable after the match and suggested that everyone in the dressing room feel responsible for the situation.
Many Tottenham fans took to Twitter to express their reaction after the match, and some were glad Lloris told the truth.
This is an interview. Say whatever you like about his performance, but for someone who clearly loves the club to be here as long as he is, for someone who has a lot of respect in the club this is a strong message to everyone.

So what’s going on at the club? He doesn’t dare to delve any further, understands it perfectly, but what does he suggest? I cannot say from this whether it is the players or the manager. However, when you have a manager who promotes anti-football, I can understand that the players dilute the enthusiasm!

Finally, a tiny bit of honesty and clarity. Player drop tools if not selected. Position in training and matches is not there. We can all see it walking around the field on match day. He might be over his best but if everyone had his stance, we might get somewhere already

Fair play Hugo, he calls out more self-conscious players than the team, the last two performances were toxic, remember these guys are the ones who kicked out Buck for what exactly Hugo says here, Jose has to go, so a few of those protesters have to go!

He is one of the most shameful people out there

What I don’t understand is we have the captain of England, the captain of France and Tottenham, the captain of the Ivory Coast, the captain of Wales, and off the field the captain of the South Korean national team and the captain of the winning teams in the Champions League and League. How tf don’t we have a fight against Zagreb?

Lloris indicated that Tottenham, who lost to Arsenal in Derby in north London last week, needed to be stronger mentally and competitive.
He feels that Tottenham Hotspur are not playing or training as a team and that some of them are not progressing in the right behavior.
