Hoddle singles out two Tottenham stars for criticism after Milan loss

Glenn Hoddle has singled out two Tottenham players for criticism following the Champions League exit to AC Milan. Spurs crashed out at the last-16 stage following a dour 0-0 draw at home in the second leg.

Cristian Romero was sent off with 15 minutes remaining in north London. The Argentine was booked for a second time after a reckless challenge.

He was the first player Hoddle singled out in his post-match analysis. But the pundit also reckons the time has come for Son Heung-min to spend a period on the sidelines.

Hoddle said on BT Sport: “Romero’s got to be looked at. We say it every week, he could be a wonderful defender but time and time again he gets sent off, he gets a second booking – he’s got to play differently then.

“That’s just one individual but as a collective, they just weren’t at it tonight, very disappointing, and that is a pattern of Tottenham.

“[Son’s] playing in chains, he’s played for weeks in chains. He’s not even thinking about what he’s going to do next with the ball, he’s just worried about getting control and not making a mistake.

“He’s scored goals from the bench, he scored three against Leicester – take him out. Actually, take him out for a few weeks and let him come on from the sidelines. That’s just one individual player but it wasn’t good enough right the way through the team.”
