Lord Sugar rips into Mousa Dembele

White Hart Lane 5

The ex-Spurs owner did not hold back in his assessment of the Belgian midfielder.

Lord Sugar has described Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Mousa Dembele as a "bloody idiot" on Twitter after the Belgian's altercation with Chelsea striker Diego Costa on Monday night.

The 28-year-old could find himself in hot water with the Football Association following images which appeared to show him eye gouging the Blues marksman midway through last night's feisty 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge.

At the time, Spurs were leading 2-0 and looked on course to move back within five points of Premier League leaders Leicester City, though the Lilywhites' second-half collapse saw Mauricio Pochettino's side surrender the title.

Sugar was beside himself over the fact that Dembele jeopardised his team's chances of victory by making such a gesture, and he pulled no punches of his assessment on Twitter shortly after it happened.


If charged and found guilty, Dembele may join Dele Alli on the sidelines after the 20-year-old was slapped with a three-match ban for punching West Brom's Claudio Yacob during last week's 1-1 draw at White Hart Lane.

In addition to that, Pochettino's side could be decimated further if any action is taken on the post-match melee between a number of Chelsea and Spurs staff.
