Former Tottenham player and current talkSPORT pundit Jamie O’Hara expressed his frustration and anger towards Tottenham Hotspur and their interim boss Cristian Stellini after their 1-1 draw against Everton. O’Hara believes that Antonio Conte was right about Tottenham’s lack of desire as they failed to hold onto their lead against a struggling side for the second game in a row.
Tottenham took the lead through Harry Kane just minutes after he was slapped by Abdoulaye Doucoure, who was shown a straight red card. Lucas Moura was also given his marching orders for a dangerous tackle on Michael Keane, who scored a 90th-minute screamer to seal the draw.
Spurs have dropped points in yet another dismal performance, and O’Hara expressed his anger and frustration soon after the final whistle. Speaking to Jason Cundy on The Sports Bar, he said: “We’ve got to talk about Tottenham, what a joke. Jase I’m sitting here, I’m boiling and I know Spurs fans are absolutely boiling.
“I have to say, it was a disgrace, the last 15 minutes of that game. They should be ashamed of themselves to be walking in the dressing room and it being 1-1. What on earth are them players doing?
“You know what, Conte come in for a load of stick Jase, a load of stick and how he said what he said and where he said what he said was wrong. But what he was 100 per cent correct in was the fact that this team are pathetic.
“They’ve got no desire, they can’t play under pressure, they are finished. They’ve got no character, they’re washed as a team and the quicker we get rid of all these bang average players and bang average staff members and bang average team, the better Spurs are going to be.
“That tonight just sums up Spurs in a nutshell. Simple win, go 1-0 up, see the game out and what on earth are we doing? Jase, I’m sick of being a Spurs fan, I’m sick of it.”
Cundy said they should be talking about how good Everton were to secure a precious point, but O’Hara replied: “Credit Everton? Hold on a minute.
“Spurs go 1-0 up, they’re passing the ball around the back, Jason. It was like a Sunday league training session, I’ve seen better non-league players! Spurs were useless, hopeless, shocking management.”
He then added: “Stellini, he can do one! Get out the club, what is he doing there? He’s clueless as well. They go down to ten men and he’s playing three at the back, against ten men. Get out, get them out, the lot of them.”
The result for Spurs sees them sit fourth in the Premier League table on goal difference ahead of Manchester United, but the Red Devils have two games in hand. Champions League qualification could therefore become a lot more difficult with just nine matches left to play this season. Everton on the other hand are now out of the relegation zone, with Sean Dyche’s side rising to 15th.
