The manager of Tottenham Hotspur, Jose Mourinho, has revealed that the Dele Alli was angry because he was substituted during their match against RB Leipzig in UEFA Champions League.

RB Leipzig on Wednesday night in London defeated Tottenham 1-0 in the round of 16 first-leg of the tournament.

Tottenham Hotspur was defeated on Wednesday thanks to a goal from Timo Werner from the spot-kick in the second half of the match to give the Bundesliga side an advantage ahead of the return leg in March.

Dele Alli was spotted throwing a water bottle to the ground when he was replaced by Erik Lamela in the 64th minute.

Mourinho while speaking on the development 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.”

“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.”
