Tottenham Hotspur are out of the Champions League, falling to a 3-0 defeat against RB Leipzig tonight in Germany, 4-0 on aggregate.

Spurs always looked up against it in the tie after losing the home leg 1-0 last month, leaving themselves with everything to do.

What made matters worse was that Jose Mourinho didn’t even have the likes of Harry Kane, Heung-min Son, Moussa Sissoko, or Steven Bergwijn to call on.

All four are out injured, with the first three having been out for some time now. Tottenham now have just the Premier League top four to play for this season.

Mourinho even seemingly took Giovani Lo Celso off early tonight to avoid fatigue and injury for the game against Man United on Sunday.

After having reached the Champions League Final last year, Spurs fail to even make the quarters this time around.

Some Tottenham fans took to Twitter to react to the result:

  1. If you were looking for surprises tonight (in watching Tottenham’s pitiful descent and subsequently predictable lame CL exit) you were looking in all the wrong places. As true to their stuttering form over this past year or so they huffed and they puffed, but never quite got to grips with either the game itself or to competing with a seemingly far superior and fluid opposition in RB Leipzig, who simply and systematically pulled Spurs pants down right in front of them! Indeed there truly were no surprises to speak of for me, having watched the same inept brand of football week in week out for what seems a painful eternity now – and as I wonder if I am now floating precariously in some kind of torrid footie’ purgatory – sadly such was the undoubting predicability of it all that I even called the score correctly pre-game without so much as a hesitation in thought. Whilst many will clamber to lay further blame at the feet of an already clearly frustrated and perhaps even more readily unpopular manager in the once so highly lauded Jose Mourinho, whose credibility and respectability in football circles seems to be not just fading rapidly now but brought under increasing scrutiny and ridicule for his efforts. I still believe the blame lays squarely elsewhere. I firmly believe we are where we are due to the way the football club has been run at the highest level, and we are merely seeing the fruits borne out of the whopping mistakes that have been made not by months but years now and finally as a club we are rueing the consequences. Warning were issued both internally and externally by a manager and by critics alike. The sad thing from a considered perspective is that things likely to improve if recent comments from a frankly clueless chairman are anything to go by, at least in football true terms that is! Given the dizzy heights that Tottenham took so long to achieve as a club. in contrast to the flailing headless creature it has since become it seems that the dream of cups and glory reborn has now gone… we may well have a shiny new stadium fit for kings, but that is all a the club itself is fast becoming a pale shadow of it’s former self, lost in the past and lost at least conceivably for the for-seeable future.
