Tottenham crashing out of the Europa League at the hands of Dinamo Zagreb is a sackable offence from Jose Mourinho, according to former Spurs midfielder Jamie O’Hara. Spurs took a 2-0 lead to Croatia for the second leg of the last-16 tie. However, a hat-trick from Mislav Orsic turned the game on its head and Dinamo ran out winners after extra time.
Tottenham’s last remaining hope of winning silverware this season rests on the Carabao Cup.
Spurs face Manchester City in the final at Wembley in April although may have to do without Champions League football again next season.
O’Hara was analysing the match against Zagreb for Sky Sports and was appalled by what he saw.
“This has been one of the worst European performances I have ever witnessed from Spurs,” he said.

“It’s been shocking. No composure, no leadership. It’s just amateur, Spurs tonight have been rookie.
“An away performance, in Europe, these players should know better.
“Eric Dier’s played in a World Cup. Just have maturity about your game. It’s been shocking.”
And O’Hara believes the result should spell the end of Mourinho’s time at the club.

He added: “One game to save your season right, they have to beat Man City.
“[But] this is a sackable offence in my opinion. This is shocking.”
Mourinho spoke to the media after the match and was at a loss as to why his side performed like they did.
Mourinho told BT Sport: “If I forget the last 10 minutes of the extra-time, where we did something to get a different result and to go through, in the 90 minutes and the first half of the extra-time was one team that decided to leave everything on the pitch.
“They left everything there, they left sweat, they left energy, they left blood, at the end of the game they left even tears of happiness. Very humble, very committed and I have to praise them.
“On the other side, my team, and I repeat, my team, I am there, that didn’t look like they were playing an important match.
“If for any one of them it was not an important match, for me it is because of the respect I have for my career and for my own job. Every match is an important match for me.
“I believe for every Tottenham fan at home, every match matters and another attitude is needed.
“To say that I feel sad is not enough because what I feel goes much further than sadness.”
