Rafael van der Vaart has given a blunt and honest assessment on Tottenham Hotspur’s 7-2 defeat to Bayern Munich.
The former Spurs midfielder, when speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live Sport has claimed that the players believe that they are better than what they actually are after a humbling evening in North London.
Spurs have experienced a tough start to the season having only won three of their opening seven matches in the Premier League along with the embarrassing Carabao Cup exit to League Two Colchester United with last night’s loss being the cherry on the top of the cake.
Despite starting the game well with Mauricio Pochettino bringing back his high pressing game, the evidence was there from the opening few minutes that there were gaps in behind the Spurs defence when Serge Gnabry broke clear, something which would become a common theme in the second half.
The second half was nothing short of a horror show, with van der Vaart certainly pulling no punches with his view on the current squad.
Spurs must now try and get themselves ready for the Premier League match at Brighton on Saturday lunchtime.
How do you explain a 2-7 defeat, @rafvdvaart?
