Tottenham Manager, Jose Mourinho has berated his players for losing 3-0 to Dinamo Zagreb to crash out of the Europa League.

Tottenham won the first leg 2-0 in London but capitulated in an alarming fashion in the second leg.

"My team didn't bring to the game the basics of football or life –- to respect our jobs and give everything. I can only apologise to the Tottenham supporters," said Mourinho.

"If I forget the last 10 minutes of extra time, where we did something to get a different result, the 90 minutes and first half of extra time was one team leaving everything on the pitch.

"My team didn't look like it was playing an important match. Another attitude is needed. To say I feel sad is not enough. What I feel is much more than sadness."

Harry Kane almost snatched a lifeline ffor Tottenham but his effort was clawed out by Dinamo Zagreb goalkeeper to send Spurs out of the competition.
