‘Get a proper manager, not Conte’s mate!’: Jamie Carragher calls for Tottenham to SACK Cristian Stellini after imploding against Newcastle, while Gary Neville hits out at ‘shocking’ Cristian Romero
- Tottenham imploded against Newcastle as they went 5-0 down in the first half
- Jamie Carragher ripped into the team and said Cristian Stellini should be sacked
- Spurs ended up going 6-1 down in second half after Harry Kane pulled one back
Jamie Carragher called on Tottenham to sack Cristian Stellini just a month into his reign as caretaker boss – as he told the club to ‘get a proper manager in, not Antonio Conte’s mate.
Spurs were ripped to shreds by Eddie Howe’s men in the first half, going 5-0 down in the first 20 minutes in one of the most astonishing collapses in recent Premier League history, leaving football fans and pundits stunned.
Jacob Murphy netted a brace in the opening 10 minutes, while Joelinton, Aleksandr Iak – who also scored a double – and Calum Wilson also got in on the act with the Toon outfit going 6-1 up in the second half after Harry Kane pulled one back.
Carragher gave a brutal response after seeing the north London outfit implode, saying Tottenham were a ‘disgrace’ as he also tore into their defenders.
‘Newcastle are brilliant, they have been all season,’ he said on Twitter.
‘Tottenham are a disgrace! How have they gone to a back four for the first time this season, with Porro a full back that can’t defend & Perisic who is a winger’

Carragher’s Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville was similarly scathing of Spurs after watching their first half performance at St James’ Park, and took aim at their defending, with a number of stars guilty of woeful displays.
‘Romero shocking for that goal ! Porro had to half cover the run!’ he said about Jacob Murphy’s opening goal.
He later tweeted: ‘Now Dier and Lloris! Only Perisic not made a mistake!’
As Spurs went five down, he wrote another post saying: ‘Perisic now getting involved ! Where was he drifting!’
