Tottenham Hotspur crashed out of yet another competition as they were resoundingly beaten across two-legs in the Champions League on Tuesday evening.
Jose Mourinho’s side were walloped 3-0 by RB Leipzig, meaning the Bundesliga outfit secured a 4-0 aggregate victory and condemned the north Londoners to their Premier League plight.
Overall, it was quite a defensive diasterclass from Spurs with supporters unleashing on Serge Aurier for his performance at right-back.
They now only have the top four to play for but that seems a world away now as they are some seven points behind Chelsea, so maybe Tottenham’s time on the elite stage is done for the foreseeable future.
Here’s how fans have been reacting…
Lamela is 💩
Moura is an impact sub
Dele is a lazy complaining prat
Winks is bang average
Sessegnon looks like a Div 4 player
Aurier is a shambles & a clown
Lloris is finished
Toby is old
Dier is a cart horse

Aurier is a flat out fool.
Dele should be finishing end balls.#THFC

Where all the Aurier lovers. Useless thick liability for a footballer #levyout

Aurier is a liability, and Tanganga is going to be completely shot of confidence by the time this season is done.
Hugo…. I don't know what to say.

Lloris and Aurier absolute donkeys. defensive errors costing us again

Aurier don't try. As lazy as anything. I've spotted him walking back 10 times this game

The 27-year-old was blasted for being a “liability” as well as an “absolute donkey” while a couple of supporters noted his lazy attitude, which only provided ammunition to launch scathing criticism at his display.
SofaScore handed Aurier a 6.4 rating after he lost possession 18 times, failed to provide an accurate cross from four attempts and only managed to produce on tackle all match.
Therefore, these fans may well be onto something – one even labelled him a “clown” so that only goes to show how poorly thought of he is right now.
Plenty of others would like to see the Ivory Coast international out the door this summer following cries for the club to “get rid” of him.
At least this is like putting an animal out of its misery.
We are nowhere near good enough to be in the #ChampionsLeague – awful.
On how many occasions do we suffer from mistakes by Aurier and Lloris?

The players I want Jose to sell this Summer window.

“Shocking” and “useless” were two further comments made about Aurier’s performance while some members of the Spurs faithful talked him up to be one of the worst players to ever grace the pitch.
He was compared to Hossam Ghaly, who had a dire spell in north London between 2006 and 2009 – that’s how bad it’s gotten.

Aurier easily the worst player to ever play for the club

Aurier – probably the worst player I’ve ever seen set foot on a football pitch
