Angry Dele Alli throws his boots to the ground after being taken away by Jose Mourinho in a moderate defeat by RB Leipzig … and almost hits Gedson Fernandes in the face!
It was a hugely frustrating night for everyone associated with Tottenham on Wednesday, but especially things became a bit too much for Dele Alli.
Tottenham fell at home on a moderate 1-0 loss against Bundesliga-side RB Leipzig in the first leg of their Champions League final-16 draw, with Timo Werner scoring the only goal of the match from the penalty spot.
While Tottenham was desperately looking for an equalizer in the second half, manager Jose Mourinho took Alli away for Erik Lamela in the 64th minute – much to the English international’s anger.

After hearing his fate and walking back to the dugout, Alli decided to launch his water bottle on the floor before taking off his boots and throwing them aggressively on the floor.
And while Alli’s boots jumped off the floor and immediately into the air again, they almost slapped Gedson Fernandes – who was being replaced at the same time as his teammate – right in the face.
Alli watched the rest of the race in silence while Tottenham failed to find a very important leveler to take over to Germany for the second leg.

Julian Nagelsmann’s side is in a commanding position after Werner emphatically won his penalty in the 58th minute.
Ben Davies was the man who was guilty of giving away the spot after he clumsily attacked Konrad Lainer in the Tottenham penalty area.
Spurs desperately pushed a way back in the game and had a golden opportunity to go straight to death near Lucas Moura.
However, the header of the Brazilian sailed far over the bar, much to the relief of Leipzig goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi.
