Matt Doherty, Tanguy Ndombele, Dele Alli and Davinson Sanchez “shouldn’t wear a Spurs shirt again” after their loss to NS Mura in the Europa Conference League, according to Jamie O’Hara.
New Tottenham boss Antonio Conte watched on as his 10-man side were beaten 2-1 by the Slovenian minnows – the lowest-ranked team in the Europa Conference League who had lost all four of their previous games.
Spurs went down to Amadej Marosa’s stoppage-time goal after Harry Kane had earlier cancelled out Tomi Horvat’s shock opener.
Ahead of the match, O’Hara was in good spirits on Sky Sports, he said: “This is going to be a walk in the park. I think we’re going to see four, five goals. It’s going to be a breeze. We’re going to see players playing well…”
After Spurs went 1-0 down, O’Hara changed his tune, he added: “It’s absolutely shocking, they should be ashamed of themselves. I don’t think you’ll see a few of these in a Spurs shirt again.”

And he was livid following the conclusion of the match, calling out four “shocking” players specifically who were not good enough.
“These are a Slovenian top-flight side that I would expect a National League side to give a game.
“It has been a disgrace and some of the players – and I’ll name them as well – (Matt) Doherty, (Tanguy) Ndombele, Dele Alli, Davinson Sanchez were absolutely shocking, they shouldn’t wear a Spurs shirt again some of them in my opinion.
“This is a European game you need to win and go out and impress a new manager in Antonio Conte. You’ve got to go out there and give everything you’ve got and put in an unbelievable performance for yourself to say ‘I want to be part of this group and part of this Conte era’ – and not one player on that pitch deserves any credit from that game.
“It was a shocking performance. These players are strolling around the park like they’re dismissing this game as if they think they’re too good to play in it.
“It was an absolute disgrace from some of them – and if Conte doesn’t make big changes – get them out of the club, get ride of them, get them off the wage bill – we don’t want them, it was pathetic.”
