JOSE MOURINHO slammed Tanguy Ndombele after Spurs’ record buy was hauled off at half-time.
Mourinho was so enraged by the Frenchman’s display that he hooked him with Burnley in front — after Tottenham’s midfield had been totally over-run.
And even though Dele Alli’s spot-kick ended a run of four losses, the Spurs boss was more concerned with the dismal display from Ndombele.
The 23-year-old was signed last summer for £55million rising to £65m.
And Mourinho said: “There are many fantastic players that struggle in their first season in new countries, but he has had enough time.
“A player with his potential has to give us more than he is giving us.
“I cannot keep giving him opportunities because the team is more important than the players.”
Mourinho praised Eric Dier, especially as Burnley supporters gave him stick following his incredible row with a Spurs fan after their midweek FA Cup exit.
Mourinho said: “He was really solid again and he was in emotional control.”
Sean Dyche reckoned his side should have had a penalty when Davinson Sanchez clashed with goalscorer Chris Wood.
The Burnley boss said: “The lad clearly comes through the back of him.”
