Lord Sugar has criticised Tottenham Hotspur striker Fernando Llorente on Twitter.
Tottenham held on to beat Leicester City 3-1 at Wembley this afternoon, but Llorente struggled.
The Spaniard, who partnered Son Heung-min up front, had very little influence in Mauricio Pochettino's two-pronged attack and often found himself isolated from the game itself.
Pochettino hauled him off for Victor Wanyama on 80 minutes after Spurs conceded, and Sugar admitted on Twitter that he wasn't pleased with the former Juventus and Athletic Bilbao hitman.
Lorente sorry to say has not contributed yet to this game . The just time we moaned about him in a game he went on to score the winner— Lord Sugar (@Lord_Sugar) February 10, 2019
Llorente has been an unlikely hero for Spurs in recent weeks and scored a late winner in a come-from-behind win over Watford last month.
But the former Spain international, a £12 million signing in 2017 [Sky Sports], is simply inconsistent and with Harry Kane out, Pochettino needs a reliable figure up front.
The Lilywhites host Borussia Dortmund at Wembley on Wednesday in the first leg of a last-16 Champions League clash and, on the back of this, Llorente might not start.
