Micky Hazard claims Tottenham “fell apart” in their humiliating defeat to Bayern Munich on Tuesday night in the Champions League group stages.
Spurs ended up on the wrong end of a 7-2 scoreline at home against the Germany heavyweights, as they were torn to shreds in the second-half.
Visitors Bayern were 2-1 up at half-time, after goals from Joshua Kimmich and Robert Lewandowski cancelled out Heung-Min Son’s opener.
The Bundesliga outfit turned on the style in the second period with Lewandowski adding another to his personal tally, but ex-Arsenal winger Serge Gnabry stole the show with his sensational four goals.
Harry Kane’s penalty turned out to a consolation and it was a miserable night that saw Spurs concede three times in the final 10 minutes to leave a horrific scoreline.
Ex-Spurs player Hazard was left stunned by the capitulation of Mauricio Pochettino’s team and claimed on his personal Twitter account they were “so bad” in the second-half.
In shock didn’t see that coming the way we started the game. The fans wee awesome atmosphere superb the start was great chance after chance, we get the goal and then we fell apart. Bayern weren’t great just we were so bad in that second half. Lost for words this morning COYS

With hindsight Spurs should have shut up shop when they went 4-1 down against Bayern, but Kane’s penalty to cut the deficit gave them false hope and the floodgates opened soon after.
It’s been a dodgy start to the season for Spurs littered by rumoured contracts talks off the pitch and poor results on it, but Tuesday night was the icing on the cake.
Pochettino needs to find a solution quickly at the North London club, as conceding seven goals at home is unacceptable in any game and especially when all eyes are watching the Champions League.
They are fortunately not out of the European competition and could still quality from their group, but have been given a major wake-up call.
