The BBC Sport pundit claimed that Spurs need 'more pride' in their game as they let yet another lead slip away from them this season, as quoted by BBC Sport.
Last Wednesday, Spurs let a two-goal lead slip out of their hands in the Champions League, whilst they did the same against their North London rivals before the international break.
It is becoming a common theme by Mauricio Pochettino's side as Spurs fans think they don't have any 'true leaders' on the pitch despite having a number of experienced players on the pitch.
Tottenham's inability to hold onto a lead is only adding to the negativity at the club because since the start of the campaign there has been a lot of questions asked about what will happen to certain players and whether they will still be at the club.
It is fair to say that the Spurs fans aren't happy with their players because they feel that they are folding under pressure and not proving their worth on the pitch.
The positive for the club is that amongst all this negativity they are sitting seventh in the Premier League table and are only three points off third place.
Pochettino's side can feed some good feeling into their team when they enter the EFL Cup on Tuesday night with Spurs taking on League Two side Colchester United.
Here is a selection of Spurs fans on Twitter reacting to Cahill's comments as some of them are in agreement that he is speaking the truth:
Tim Cahill- Spurs need more leaders on the pitch— TAS⚽️ (@coys100) September 21, 2019
We had 11 internationals today. The England captain. 2 CB with close on 200 caps between them. And 9 CL finalists ♂️
And none of them take responsibility. Im sorry but we have no true leader with a bit of sense to him.— Cenk (@ForzaYids) September 21, 2019
None of them are leaders— Giovani Lo White Hart Prince✨ (@Flirtram) September 21, 2019
And all of them fold under pressure.— O'Doyle Rules! (@ODOYLE_RULES_) September 22, 2019
I think he was spot on. The sum of a teams parts doesn't mean anything. How many trophies has England won in sixty years?— Castle Rock Brit (@CastleRockBrit) September 22, 2019
Spurs have regressed when you look at the performances and results over the last half a season.
That is undeniable.
He was right we need a Roy Keane dare I say Tony Adams type player— Billy Cairns (@Billytheyid70) September 21, 2019
He's spot on, we have no leader(s) in the team— Michael Donkor (@mikyonehotspur) September 22, 2019
