Ruud Gullit picked out Dele Alli and two of his Tottenham’s team-mates for criticism after their first leg loss to Ajax on Tuesday night.
Spurs’ first European Cup semi-final in 57 years did not go to plan at their stunning new home as the Dutch giants ran out 1-0 victors.
Donny Van De Beek’s 15th-minute effort proved the difference in north London, where Ajax could have scored more on a night that saw David Neres hit the post late on.
“Ajax were under pressure but even under pressure they could hold their defence,” Gullit told beIN Sports. “They didn’t give away a chance.
“But, for me, a lot of players were disappointing because I see them every week in the Premier League.
“Dele Alli, oh my god, technical wise so bad. (Victor) Wanyama, my god, technical wise, (Danny) Rose too.
“Like I said I see them every week and how is it possible to make so many mistakes.
“I know you’re under pressure but you need to know what to do and they didn’t.”
"I'm very proud of them."
"But a lot of players, disappointing. Dele Alli…so bad!"
