Lord Sugar claims that Tottenham deserved to lose on Wednesday night.
Spurs suffered a 1-0 defeat against Bayer Leverkusen in their Champions League group stage match at Wembley, with Kevin Kampl scoring the decisive goal in the second-half.
The result leaves the north London club third-placed in their group and currently occupying a Europa League spot.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side are currently two points adrift of second-placed Leverkusen and they will need positive results against Monaco and CSKA Moscow if they are to progress to the Champions League knockout rounds.
Sugar, who was Spurs’ chairman for 16 years, revealed his disappointment with Wedensday’s result and feels Leverkusen were the better side.
“The better team won tonight. We don’t like Wembley,” Sugar wrote on his personal Twitter account.
Spurs are using the national stadium of Wembley this season for their European campaign and have now lost both matches at the ground.
They fell to a 2-1 defeat to Monaco earlier in the group stage and were underwhelming in the loss to Leverkusen.
Pochettino’s side are now without a win in their last six games in all competitions and have scored just three goals in that time.
Spurs face bitter rivals Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday and could be boosted by the return of first-choice striker Harry Kane for the match.
