Four Tottenham players have been branded a "disgrace" in the aftermath of the side's 2-1 Europa League loss to NS Mura, with one pundit even suggesting that the quartet should never play for the club again.
It was a thoroughly embarrassing evening for Antonio Conte's side, who conceded the second goal in the 94th minute after Harry Kane had previously restored parity.
Slovenian minnows Mura had lost all four of their previous Europa League ties, compounding Spurs' woes, who now sit second in Group G - four points behind Rennes.
The only saving grace for the away was the fact that they played most of the game with 10 men after Ryan Sessegnon's early dismissal.
However, this wasn't enough to prevent former Inter boss Conte from hammering his players in front of the media.
"I am happy to stay here but we have to work a lot to improve the quality of the squad," Conte told reporters.
"We are Tottenham but there is an important gap with the top teams but I am not scared."
TalkSPORT pundit, and former Spurs prospect Jamie O'Hara was even more scathing in his assessment, singling out Dele Alli and Tanguy Ndombele, as well as defenders Matt Doherty and Davinson Sanchez for especially harsh criticism.
"These are a Slovenian top-flight side that I would expect a National League side to give a game," O'Hara said on Sky Sports News (via The Mirror).
"It has been a disgrace and some of the players - and I'll name them as well - Doherty, Ndombele, Dele Alli, Davinson Sanchez, were absolutely shocking.
"They shouldn't wear a Spurs shirt again some of them in my opinion."
According to the former Fulham and Wolves midfielder, the attitude of some squad members was completely wrong, which seemingly won't be tolerated by Conte for too much longer.
"These players are strolling around the park like they're dismissing this game as if they think they're too good to play in it," he added.
"It was an absolute disgrace from some of them - and if Conte doesn't make big changes - get them out of the club, get rid of them, get them off the wage bill. We don't want them, it was pathetic."
