Lloris hints at deep problems for Spurs in sensational interview

Mislav Orsic scored a brilliant hat-trick as Dinamo produced a remarkable fightback to dump Spurs out of the Europa League on Thursday night.

The Croatian side trailed 2-0 after the first leg of their last-16 tie but hit back to win the return 3-0 after extra time and snatch a place in the quarter-final draw.

Jose Mourinho’s Spurs looked set to prevail after holding the hosts in a goalless opening half at the Maksimir Stadium but Orsic gave Zagreb hope with a fine long-range just after the hour.

He then levelled the tie by finishing off a fine team move seven minutes from time and capped a fine comeback following a superb solo run in extra time.

Lloris had no excuses for Spurs fans after the game, with the club captain suggesting to BT Sport that there are problems both on and off the pitch at the club.

Asked how he and the team were after their Europa exit, a disconsolate Lloris replied: “Good question, I think we are all more than disappointed.

“It is just a disgrace. I just hope everyone in the training room feels responsible of the situation because it’s a disgrace.

“No what can I say more about it? Talking about the game of Sunday, I think it’s not the right moment. The taste of the defeat tonight is just more than painful, and we are all responsible.”

Asked whether it was a more painful defeat than Sunday’s north London derby loss to Arsenal, he replied: “It’s just accumulation. Obviously we are a club full of ambition, but I just think the team at the moment is just a [reflection] of what’s going on in the club.
