- Dele Alli furiously responded to being subbed during a UCL Round 16 first leg clash between Tottenham and RB Leipzig
- The 23-year-old was subbed for Lamela after Timo Werner had put the Germans ahead via a penalty
- Dele reacted by launching a water bottle and his unlaced boot on the ground before lowering his head down in overt frustration
Dele Alli was left in an anger after he was substituted during a UCL encounter between Spurs and RB Leipzig on Wednesday night, February 19.
The English star was obviously furious at being taken out in the face of an embarrassing defeat to the Germans at Tottenham Stadium and angrily reacted by throwing a water bottle and his boots.
Jose Mourinho's side was helpless at the front of their fans as they suffered a 1-0 defeat to the German side, all thanks to Timo Werner's 58th-minute strike which came via a penalty after Konrad Laimer was brought down.
With Spurs on a leg out towards imminent Champions League exit, Alli released his disappointment after he was taken out in the 64th minute for Erik Lamela.
Mourinho was left with no option other than picking the England star in place of injured Harry Kane and Son Heung-min, but he could not produce a moment of breakthrough for Spurs who are going through a turbulent time.
Alli then threw a water bottle as he moved toward the bench. He later unlaced his boot and angrily hurled it on the ground before putting his head in his hands in a showing of anger.
Mourinho reacted to the midfielder's action after the game, saying he was subbed to bring the game under the control.
“I think he was angry with his performance, not me. I think he understands why I took him off - and the team improved. You have to look at our situation," the Portuguese said.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that Jose Mourinho was not impressed with the way his side played during Tottenham's loss to RB Leipzig in their first leg round of 16 Champions League match.
The Lily Whites were practically defending for their lives in most part of the game as Hugo Lloris brilliance was also key to Spurs not conceding more than one goal.
But the north London club finally let in a goal after Timo Werner converted a spot-kick that eventually became the match-winner in the 58th minute.
