Harry Kane admits Tottenham’s attitude in their shock defeat against Dinamo Zagreb was “embarrassing”
The Premier League side took a 2-0 lead to Croatia in their Europa League clash but were left red faced.
Tottenham’s reverse was a low point in their recent history.
Club captain Hugo Lloris didn’t hold back in his post-match assessment as the future of Jose Mourinho was called into question.
It means the Carabao Cup is now Tottenham’s only hope of winning silverware this term.
A lack of trophies has cast doubt over Kane’s future with the forward yet to win anything in his career.
The 28-year-old has spoken candidly about their European exit and laid the blame firmly at his side’s doorstep.
“We know we dropped below our standards and the worst part of that is probably our attitude, in terms of how were on the pitch,” he told the club website.
“You can lose football matches, you can have games where the opposition are better, but that wasn’t really the case.
“We didn’t have any fight, any passion and that’s embarrassing from our point of view as players, we’re the ones on the pitch and we have to control that.
“It’s a shame because we were on a good run before that, but we did a really good job at Villa and bounced back in the right way.
“That’s what we need, and it’s not just for one game, it can’t be like a switch, on and off, it needs to be every game we play in.
“We’ve nine more in the Premier League now, we’ve a cup final to play, we’ve just got to focus on every game and if we have this attitude, I’m sure we’ll be alright.”
Kane has smashed the 20-goal barrier for the seventh successive season this term.
