Ramon Vega has expressed his fury at Tottenham’s elimination from the Carabao Cup, insisting that the club is run more like a real estate company than a football club.
It was always going to be an uphill task for Spurs to make the final, with Chelsea coming into the second leg at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium 2-0 up in the tie.
Antonio Conte was also without the likes of Eric Dier, Son Heung-min and Cristian Romero, who were absent due to injury.
The Lilywhites’ task became even harder when Chelsea took the lead through Antonio Rudiger in the 18th minute after Pierluigi Gollini came for a corner kick and was stranded in no man’s land.
Spurs gave a much better account of themselves in the second half but some poor execution in the final third saw the Blues walk away with a 1-0 win from the second leg and a 3-0 win on aggregate.
Vega took to social media to criticise the Tottenham hierarchy after the club blew another chance to break their trophy drought.
Here’s what the former Spurs defender tweeted after Chelsea’s win:
And another year???? More more and I start to believe we have a real estate company than a football Club. lucky we have some great fans to support the Club ??? But Enough is enough. Maybe I should not say that but I just feel like that. pic.twitter.com/3RPofWkITr

Spurs Web Opinion
This type of reactionary takes blaming the ownership after every defeat is getting pretty tiring. The reality is that a lot of money has been invested into the squad over the last couple of years but our recruitment has been poor.
We are now in a new era under Fabio Paratici and Antonio Conte and it is only fair that they are given time.
Tottenham’s ownership have certainly made their fair share of mistakes over the years but now that Partici has been handed the reins on all footballing decisions, it makes no sense to keep criticising Levy.
The club, both on and off the pitch, are certainly in an infinitely better place than they were during Vega’s playing days.
