'My ears are bleeding'-Twitter reacts to Robbie Savage's comments during Tottenham v Dortmund

By Coral Barry

Robbie Savage commentated Tottenham’s game with Borussia Dortmund in the Europa League on Thursday- and Twitter were pleading with him to stop.

The former Blackburn player was unimpressed with Mauricio Pochettino’s team selection after the Spurs coach made seven changes to his side from the weekend draw with Arsenal.

“You’ve got Aston Villa at the weekend. Why not start Kane, Lamela, Dembele tonight? It’s a mistake,” said Savage speaking on BT Sport.

Spurs were battered 3-0 by the German side in the first leg of their last 16 tie after leaving Eric Dier in England and Harry Kane and Moussa Dembele on the bench.

Savage was keen to point out how he felt about the selections, repeatedly and listeners seemed more annoyed at his comments than Tottenham’s loss.
