Alan Sugar slams mistake-ridden Spurs duo on Twitter - and Didi Hamann agrees

Danny Rose and Jan Vertonghen

The former Tottenham Hotspur chairman directed criticism towards Kyle Walker and Danny Rose on Twitter.

Alan Sugar was highly critical of Danny Rose and Kyle Walker on Twitter during Tottenham's 3-0 defeat to Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.

The Spurs duo let both themselves and their team-mates down with tepid displays at Old Trafford - but were far from the only ones as the north London side capitulated at the hands of Louis van Gaal's men.

And Sugar was unforgiving of the pair on social media - while ex-Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamann backed his criticism.

Hamann's reply came seconds before Sugar added his criticism of the right-back.

As Opta stats show, for any contribution Rose and Walker did make against Manchester United, they certainly matched it with plenty of errors.

Both posted an okay passing accuracy but were ineffective with their crosses, while they lost 13 duels between them.

Intriguingly, Harry Kane lost more than both put together for Spurs - showing that Rose and Walker weren't Tottenham's only fall guys against Manchester United.

Re: Lord Sugar and Hamann's criticism, though, it was definitely just. Walker has been off the boil for several weeks now, while 24-year-old Rose is nowhere near England's best left-back - and Mauricio Pochettino's claims otherwise clearly didn't work in the defender's favour at Old Trafford.
