Tottenham have been sent crashing out of the Europa League

Glenn Hoddle believes Tottenham’s Europa League exit to Dinamo Zagreb is a disaster for the club.

Jose Mourinho’s side were expected to seal their passage through to the quarter-finals after heading to Croatia with a 2-0 first-leg advantage.

But Mislav Orsic’s hat-trick sent them crashing out of the competition, and dealing a major blow to their aspirations of Champions League football next season.

Reacting to the defeat, Hoddle, the former Tottenham player and manager, said: “It was a disastrous performance, a disastrous result for the club.

“Spurs were diabolical.

Mentally, they got it wrong right through the game.”

Speaking as a pundit on BT Sport, he added: “I said at half-time that if Zagreb score, I am expecting a reaction from Tottenham.

But I then didn’t expect Zagreb to take control of the game.

“Spurs went backwards, downhill, instead of fighting.

They should have gone up through the gears, but there was not enough ability on the team, or on the night that somebody was going to take responsibility and change the game.

“Everybody was looking at each other.

That can happen, and when it does it is disastrous for the team.”

The defeat was Tottenham’s second in five days following their 2-1 loss at Arsenal in the Premier League.

Former Spurs striker Peter Crouch said on BT Sport: “They haven’t turned up in two games.

“Players have gone missing.

We saw players hiding, not tracking back, simple passes were not made, there was no creativity.

“Zagreb were the better side, and they deserved to go through.

That’s disastrous and you wonder where Tottenham’s season is going to go from now.

“I have got a lot of friends who are Spurs fans and they are not happy.

They lost the north London derby with a whimper, and by going out of Europe tonight, there season is hanging by a thread.”

Tottenham’s defeat at Arsenal last weekend leaves them six points off the top four, and qualification for next season’s Champions League.

Crouch added:  “I look at Harry Kane trudging off the pitch.

He shouldn’t be playing in this competition.

He is a Champions League player, but he has gone out to Dinamo Zagreb and that is the worrying thing.

“Where is his head at? Not just the manager, but those players, Son (Heung-min), Kane, they deserve to be playing at a higher level than the Europa League.”

Jose Mourinho saw his side blow a two-goal first-leg advantage

Jose Mourinho was left feeling the pressure after Tottenham were embarrassingly dumped out of the Europa League after a 3-0 loss to Dinamo Zagreb.

Spurs had one foot in the quarter-finals after last week’s 2-0 first-leg win, but they crumbled in Croatia and succumbed to Mislav Orsic’s sensational hat-trick, going out 3-2 on aggregate after extra-time.

Even at half-time of the second leg it seemed unthinkable that Spurs would not progress, but Orsic struck twice in the second half to send it to extra-time and then won it with 14 minutes remaining.

What made it even more unbelievable is that Zagreb’s manager Zoran Mamic was sentenced to four-and-a-half years in prison on Monday and was forced to resign.

Spurs’ demise was a different sort of crime and any hopes of any silverware this season now rest with a Carabao Cup final against Manchester City next month.

But even winning that might not prove sufficient as their European exit closes one avenue into next season’s Champions League and their Premier League form is unlikely to present another as they remain off the pace in the top-four race.

Mourinho insisted before the game that the tie was still open but he cannot have been accounting for what was going to happen.

They lacked intensity and were bereft of any real attacking quality as they struggled to create the opportunities for a goal that would have killed the tie.

They had fleeting moments, but Dele Alli kicked at fresh air when Harry Kane’s ball sliced open the Zagreb defence, while Erik Lamela had a shot blocked after being played in by Alli.

Spurs were inviting pressure on themselves with their inability to keep the ball and they should have fallen behind in the 34th minute but Lovro Majer failed to hit the target from a good position in the penalty area.

Yet they could have gone into half-time in front as they fashioned their best chance of the match.

A break saw Lucas Moura play in Kane, but the striker’s touch was heavier than he would have liked, allowing goalkeeper Dominik Livakovic to come out and block.

Spurs offered no improvement after the break and Dinamo gave themselves hope just after the hour.

It came in style as well, as Orsic, who missed a golden chance to put his side in front in London last week, picked up the ball on the left-hand side and taking advantage of Serge Aurier backing off he cut inside and curled an unstoppable shot into the top corner.

With the wind in their sails the hosts sensed a second and could have found one, but Kristjan Jakic stabbed over from a corner and then Bruno Petkovic lost his composure to fire over from a good position.

Mourinho sent on Giovani Lo Celso and Tanguy Ndombele and the Argentinian almost made an immediate impact in his first appearance since December, but his deflected shot was saved by Livakovic.

Tottenham have been shocking at defending leads in the Premier League this season so there was an air of inevitably about what happened in the 82nd minute.

The hosts got in down the right and Iyayi Atiemwen pulled it back for Orsic to fire home his second of the night from 10 yards out to level the tie on aggregate.

That finally forced Spurs into action and they almost hit back immediately with their best moment of the night as Gareth Bale’s cross was begging to be converted by Kane at the back post, but the England captain’s header was saved by Livakovic and then cleared off the line by Kevin Theophile-Catherine as extra-time loomed.

Orsic’s memorable night climaxed in the second minute of the second half of extra-time as he embarked on a surging run, beating several players and finding the bottom corner.

Spurs tried to respond but Livakovic saved his best two stops for last as he denied Bale and Kane late in extra-time as the Croatians claimed a famous comeback victory.
