Champions League: Mourinho speaks on Delle Alli’s anger during Tottenham’s defeat to RB Leipzig


Tottenham Hotspur manager, Jose Mourinho, has disclosed why midfielder, Dele Alli was angry after being substituted during their UEFA Champions League round of 16 first-leg 1-0 defeat against RB Leipzig on Wednesday night in London.

Tottenham was defeated in front of their home fans after Timo Werner scored the only goal of the encounter from the spot-kick in the second half to give the Bundesliga leaders an advantage ahead of the return leg in March.

Dele Alli was captured by camera throwing a water bottle to the ground before looking visibly upset on the bench when Erik Lamela replaced him in the 64th minute of the encounter at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

But Mourinho said Alli was angry when he was substituted because of his performance and not with him.

“I think Delle Alli was angry with his performance after he was substituted and not with me,” Mourinho told BT Sport.


“I believe Alli understood why I substituted him and brought in Lamela.

“Our team performance improved after that.”

He added: “Lamela can’t play full 90 minutes, so just like how Delle Alli came on against Southampton in the last 20 minutes to change the game, the same tactics I applied tonight.”
