Tottenham fans would have been waking up around the world with the same feeling of dread and embarrassment this morning after last night’s display.
It was always going to be a tough match, coming up against the champions of Germany in the Champions League, but Spurs made it look like an impossible task.
Despite taking the lead at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the Lilywhites managed to go 2-1 behind before the half-time break.
In the second 45, any trace of quality had vanished from Spurs’ game as they well and truly capitulated into a 7-2 loss.
Ex-Arsenal winger, Serge Gnabry grabbed four at the new home of the Spurs, while the Bayern players humiliated Pochettino’s men towards the end of the match.
The players out on the pitch appeared to give up after the fifth goal went in for Bayern, and Jan Vertonghen has now revealed that he is extremely hurt and ashamed after the result.
Jan said (TalkSPORT): “I feel extremely hurt, I feel ashamed, all negative thoughts are going through my head, it’s embarrassing to stand here in front of you guys.
“It’s tough. I’m not talking about other players, I’m talking about myself, about my feeling to watch everyone around the club. It’s a very bad result and I don’t want to speak too much.
“Keep supporting us. I believe we have the people in the team to overcome this situation.
“This is a bad incident but this group is together. We have to stay together. We will turn this around. I’m not walking away from this, that’s why I’m speaking to you guys, we have to take responsibility and we will.
“The next game is in the Premier League on Saturday and that can be a good chance to get rid of this feeling.”
Spurs Web Opinion:
The players should be ashamed. And not one of them can point a finger at someone else. All must stand up and own their own personal errors, apologise to the fans, and move on. This is not the end for this squad and I don’t want to see this embarrassing result bury them after five years of hard work.
