Tottenham Hotspur collapsed again having taken a 2-0 lead away at Olympiacos on Wednesday night, with the match ending 2-2 in what was a disappointing start to their Champions League campaign.
Having only taken a point from their opening three group games last season, Spurs looked to be on their way to all three in Athens following goals from Harry Kane and Lucas Moura in the opening 45 minutes, but they were soon pegged back.
On a frustrating evening, the following images of Kane, Jan Vertonghen and Mauricio Pochettino from the match may well be of some concern.
Spurs boss Pochettino said after the game he wasn’t happy that his players didn’t respect the game-plan, and his sheer disappointment and anger appears to be shown in the above photo from the closing stages of the encounter.
In what could be a crucial season for both his and Tottenham’s future as they look to get a trophy under their belt, this image of him looking completely despondent is not good to see.
With his future looking in doubt at points last month following a report saying Bayer Leverkusen wanted him, Vertonghen remained at Tottenham – the fact Spurs fans on Twitter wanted him to start against Arsenal when he was being linked with an exit proves his popularity.
The Belgian’s contract is due to run out next summer however, and it remains to be seen whether he will stay beyond that point.
He may have been at fault for the penalty conceded against Olympiacos, but the above image of pure angst is concerning.
Perhaps a potential exit is looking more attractive for him after yet another Spurs collapse.
Tottenham’s main goalscorer and talisman completely lost it during a game – not something you see too often from the England captain.
His reaction sums up what was a frustrating night for the club and for him personally, where he was starved of service.
Rio Ferdinand told BT Sport post-match that if he was Kane he would be thinking about leaving as Spurs continue to make the same old mistakes, and who could blame the striker if he is starting to consider the same thing?
