Harry Kane slams Tottenham’s ‘unacceptable’ display after dismal defeat to Slovenian whitefish Mura

‘We made INCREDIBLE mistakes and were punished’: Harry Kane condemns Tottenham’s ‘unacceptable’ performance after woeful defeat to Slovenian minnows Mura – with star striker apologizing to 2,000 traveling fans


Harry Kane made no apologies when he described Tottenham’s performance as “immature” and “unacceptable” after a shocking Europa Conference League defeat to Mura on Thursday.

The England captain led Antonio Conte’s side in Slovenia and after the second half equalizing the Spurs appear to have scored at least a point before inexplicably collapsing at the last minute.

Mura forward Amadej Marosa’s final kick winner capped a terrible night for Spurs, who now need a win over Rennes on matchday six to advance to the knockout stages, and Kane admitted that the team was not good enough.

“Actually unacceptable – didn’t start well with a goal behind, going back to ten men made it difficult for ourselves,” he said. BT Sport after the match.

“In the second half we showed some struggle and courage, got back into the game and if anyone seemed to score it was us, but then an immature mistake at the end to concede a goal.

“We already had the game, but yes, it is unacceptable. But hey, a rough night for us and we need to learn from it… we just didn’t get the job done, these nights away from home can be tough if you don’t do it right and that was the case today.

“We were calm, we had to improve our game and we did that, but it wasn’t enough, they scored in the last second of the game and yes, it hurts.

“It’s our responsibility as players on the pitch to go out and win the game and we didn’t do that today. All credit to them, we have things to learn from, but we need to dust ourselves off.’
