Someone Recorded Dele Alli's 'Furious' Reaction To Being Subbed Off Against RB Leipzig

Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli expressed his frustration at being subbed off in last night's Champions League round of 16 clash against RB Leipzig.

The England international was far from happy at being replaced by Tanguy Ndombele in the 64th minute of Wednesday night's tie. and someone in the crowd captured the 23-year-old throwing a water bottle and one of his boots on the subs bench.

Alli's outburst was soon posted to social media and many had their say on the incident.

Spurs manager Jose Mourinho voiced his opinion on the incident in his post-match press conference, and dropped a savage remark about Alli's performance against the Bundesliga side.

"I think he was angry with his performance, not with me," Mourinho said.

"I think he understands why I took him off and our performance improved."

The fact that Mourinho said that his team's performance actually improved after the departure of Alli might not go down well with the former MK Dons midfielder.

In the press conference, Mourinho still appeared happy with Spurs' progress in recent months as they prepare to face Chelsea on Saturday.

"I feel really proud of the boys. I arrived here 12 points behind the fourth (team). We are one point behind the fourth and we are going to fight." he said.

"But as I was saying in some television (interviews), the Chelsea players were watching this game on TV, with nice sparkling water, with lemons and biscuits, enjoying the game and we play Saturday at 12 o'clock.

"Thank you so much for the choice. We cannot even sleep well until 10.30 or 11. We have to wake up at 7.30 for the game."

Can Tottenham come back in the second leg against RB Leipzig and secure a place in the quarter finals?
