Glenn Hoddle fuming over £25m Spurs player in Mura defeat

Spurs legend Glenn Hoddle has criticised Tottenham defender Ryan Sessegnon in wake of his sending-off in the Europa Conference League tonight.

The 21-year-old Spurs full-back made his fourth senior appearance of the season in the trip to NS Mura.

However, Sessegnon only lasted just over half an hour before being sent off for a second booking.

The £25million signing from Fulham was booked after just 11 minutes for a mistimed tackle.

And 20 minutes later, Sessegnon caught his opponent while lunging for a loose ball, resulting in his second yellow and a red card.

Hoddle, speaking on BT Sport – as transcribed by the Daily Mail – was not happy with Sessegnon.

“Once you’re on a yellow card, you can’t go lunging like this,” said the Tottenham icon.

“You have to get it absolutely spot on. He had to go.”

Sessegnon’s sending-off came after Mura had taken the lead in the 11th minute through Tomi Horvat.

Although Harry Kane equalised in the 72nd minute, Spurs were caught out deep into injury time.

Mura broke as Tottenham pushed for a late winner and Amadej Marosa netted via a deflected shot to condemn the north Londoners to defeat.
