Former Everton midfielder Tim Cahill says Tottenham Hotspur need “more leaders” and “a little bit more pride” after Spurs’ winless league run away from home extended to nine games with defeat by Leicester.
They last had a longer winless away run between April and December 2006 (10) and have now failed to win three consecutive away Premier League games when they were leading at half-time for the first time since March 2008.
Cahill, who was appearing on BBC’s Match of the Day show as a pundit has called for the Spurs players to show pride in the badge they have on their shirt and believes that it is all down to their mentality to be able to see out results when in winning positions.
Leading 1-0 at half-time through Harry Kane, Spurs were on the wrong side of a VAR decision that would have seen us 2-0 up with 25 minutes left.
Instead, the goal was chalked off and Leicester took their opportunity to take all three points with a 2-1 win.
Cahill told Match of the Day: “For me, it’s a mentality. Leaders on the pitch to have that mark on them. 2-0 up against Arsenal, 2-0 up against Olympiacos.
“Today, one win away in their last nine away games. For me, it needs to be more about the team with more leaders and a little bit more pride for the fans for the badge they play for.”
