Tottenham Hotspur star deactivates social media account after Bournemouth defeat
| Last updated
Tottenham Hotspur defender Pedro Porro has deactivated his Instagram and Twitter accounts after their defeat by Bournemouth.
On Saturday afternoon Spurs arrived at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium looking to keep up their push for the top four.
Son Heung Min gave the home side the lead after 14 minutes, but goals from Matias Vina and Dominic Solanke made it 2-1 to Bournemouth after 51 minutes.
Despite equalising in the 88th minute, Spurs failed to hold on to the draw as Dango Ouattara stunned the home crowd with a winning goal in the 95th minute.
Spurs ended up losing 3-2 in what was a dismal afternoon for Cristian Stellini and his men.
Porro was involved in Bournemouth’s second goal after a mistake from the Spaniard allowed the Cherries to build their attack.
After the match, it has been noticed that Porro has deactivated his Twitter and Instagram, presumably to escape any abuse from fans.

Spurs boss Stellini said after the match: “My assessment is that today we played two different games. We played a good game until we scored and after we conceded the second goal. What is in the middle is not the mindset we have to use because we started the game well. When we scored we dropped.
“We dropped again. We have to change this type of mindset. We have said many times that we need to continue to go strong and try to keep the ball in their half of the pitch. We did this only when we were 2-1 down.”
He added: “It's a habit we have, it's not the first time, it's a long time that we do this. But we have to be perfect in the defensive situation.
“Today we were not so perfect because we allowed them to score with two mistakes. This is a problem, it's not a tactical problem, it's an individual problem, a mistake.”
Spurs are back in Premier League action next Sunday as they take on Newcastle United at St. James’ Park.
