Antonio Conte’s Tottenham Hotspur crashed out of the FA Cup on Tuesday night as they lost 1-0 to Championship side Middlesbrough thanks to Josh Coburn’s extra-time strike
Tottenham Hotspur have been slammed by Alan Shearer following their embarrassing FA Cup exit on Tuesday night.
Antonio Conte’s side were dramatically knocked out of the competition as they lost 1-0 to Championship side Middlesbrough.
Josh Coburn’s 107th-minute strike settled the tie in extra-time to claim their second giant-killing of the season after knocking Manchester United out in the previous round.
But pundit Alan Shearer was left less than impressed with Spurs’ performance on the night.
It comes after Arsenal loanee Folarin Balogun sent a message to Spurs after helping Middlesbrough through.
And former boss Mauricio Pochettino’s career has been revisited as the Argentine celebrates his 50th birthday.
Here are the latest Tottenham Hotspur headlines.
Pochettino at 50
Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur career was nothing short of extraordinary.
After arriving at the club in May 2014, Poch led Spurs on an upward trajectory that would ultimately see them reach the Champions League final in 2018 – an unthinkable achievement when he first took charge.
The Argentine implemented a clear philosophy at the club but his near-misses have left question marks over his ability.
While his Paris Saint-Germain side are well-placed in Ligue 1 and their Champions League tie with Real Madrid, he may now be considering his next steps.
BBC pundit Alan Shearer launched a scathing attack on Antonio Conte’s Tottenham Hotspur side after they crashed out of the FA Cup by losing to Middlesbrough.
The loss means Spurs have now made it 14 seasons without winning a trophy, despite a number of false dawns.
Antonio Conte has arrived this season raising expectations in north London, but the Italian has found life at the club challenging so far.
And after their FA Cup defeat, Shearer has laid into Conte’s side.
Balogun sends message
Middlesbrough loanee Folarin Balogun has shared a rather cheeky message following the club’s 1-0 FA Cup win over Tottenham Hotspur.
Balogun joined the side on loan from bitter rivals Arsenal in January – and the striker clearly enjoyed getting one over on Antonio Conte’s side.
The forward took to social media following the game to share his thoughts on the giant-killing as he celebrated a very successful evening for his team.
