Tottenham Hotspur fans on Twitter have been left unimpressed with defender Toby Alderweireld’s comments in the aftermath of the 7-2 defeat against Bayern Munich.
One of the senior players in the Spurs squad fronted up and spoke to The Telegraph after the Champions League debacle, saying that there isn’t a lack of commitment within in the squad, and that everybody is hungry and working hard.
Recent performances and results certainly don’t reflect that in general, but the players did show some fight when they dug in for around an hour with 10 men against Southampton last week, picking up three points in the process.
Nevertheless, the heavy midweek loss and the Carabao Cup exit against Colchester United will be playing on the minds of some with one trophy opportunity already gone, and the following Tottenham supporters are clearly frustrated about the current situation and Alderweireld’s recent comments.
While one individual simply said “don’t believe you”, another urged the 30-year-old to “stop talking”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Dont believe you

@AlderweireldTob Empty words. Your defending is inconsistent, your reactions are slow, and you’ve not re-signed. Maybe you’re part of the problem?

You don’t lose 2-7 if everyone’s hungry and working hard
