Hugo Lloris said that Tottenham fans booed Davinson Sanchez during a shocking 3-2 loss to Bournemouth, which he found “sad for the club.”
Spurs were leading 1-0 in the Premier League match at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium when Clement Lenglet got injured ten minutes before half-time. Sanchez replaced him, but he didn’t stay on the pitch for long.
Sanchez mistakes were led to Spurs defeat against Bournemouth
Dominic Solanke was given the chance to score and put the relegation-threatened Cherries ahead 2-1 after the break, thanks to a mistake by the Colombia international. He poked the ball into Solanke’s path, who then beat Lloris.
Arnaut Danjuma replaced centre-back Sanchez in the 58th minute, who had just made way for him.
Shortly after, Danjuma scored the equalizer before Dango Ouattara netted the winning goal for Bournemouth in the dying moments of the match.
When Sanchez was taken off, Tottenham supporters booed him, and captain Lloris was unhappy about the fans targeting him.
“It started earlier. It’s when he came on the pitch. I’ve never seen this in my career,” Hugo Loris told beIN Sport.
“I feel really bad for Davinson. He’s a team-mate, he’s a friend and he’s been fighting for the club for many, many years now.
“It’s just sad. The story is sad for the club, for the fans, for the player. It’s something you don’t want to see in football.”
Spurs interim manager Stellini said: “I understand it’s a tough moment for everyone and we have to analyse this moment. Everyone needs to analyse how important it is to support a player.
“I take the responsibility for the decisions I make. I thought it was too early in the game to use another striker because we were 1-0 up in the first half.
“When we were 2-1 down I thought it was the moment Davinson has to [come off]. It was only a tactical decision. We need to support him because it’s a tough moment for him and also for all the team.”
