Tottenham captain, Hugo Lloris, has spoken out on the abuse suffered by Davinson Sanchez during the 3-2 defeat at home to Bournemouth this afternoon. 

Spurs took the lead in the first half thanks to a tidy Heung-min Son finish after some nice work on the left by Ivan Perisic but, as has been a common theme of late, Spurs threw away points from a winning position.

After an injury to Clement Lenglet, Sanchez was subbed on towards the end of the first period, before Spurs conceded down his side due to some sloppy play from Pedro Porro and the Colombian.

Sanchez was then directly at fault for another Bournemouth goal just after the break, as he was dribbled past before tackling the ball into the path of Solanke.

The next time the centre-back touched the ball, numerous Spurs fans around the ground booed him. Sanchez was quickly removed from the game after just a 20-minute cameo, which generated cheers from some supporters.

Speaking on the incident to BeIN Sports, Lloris said: “It started earlier, it’s when he came on the pitch. I’ve never seen this in my career.

“I feel really bad for Davinson. He’s a team-mate, he’s a friend and he’s been fighting for the club for many many years now, and it’s just sad.

“The story is sad for the club, for the fans, for the player. It’s something you don’t want to see in football.”

Spurs Web Opinion:

No matter how bad the footballing performance is, you never want to see this on a human level. I can only imagine how Sanchez is feeling right now and I hope the club offer sufficient support away from the pitch. People often forget that footballers are human beings too.
