Fuming Marseille boss storms pitch as Spurs break for goal which won them group

Fuming Marseille manager Igor Tudor entered the playing surface as Tottenham surged forward to score a winner after his side missed a glorious chance to progress.

Antonio Conte's side went into the game knowing a point would be enough to reach the Champions League knockout stages, but Marseille took the lead through Chancel Mbemba in the first-half while needing all three points.

Clement Lenglet was on hand to equalise before Sead Kolasinac missed a gilt-edged chance – with Marseille then leaving their manager fuming by giving the ball away in the closing seconds.

Harry Kane then picked up the ball to pick out a surging Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg – all the while Tudor had stormed out of his dugout and onto the pitch.

Explaining his actions after the game, the Croatian boss said: "We deserved to win… There was too much noise, they didn't hear what I was saying…"

To make the defeat even more painful, the loss of a point led to Marseille finishing bottom of the table and missing out on a Europa League spot.

One fan joked on seeing Tudor's stance: "Igor Tudor's on the pitch, he thinks it's all over…"

A second added: "Tudor knew how dangerous that last counter was."

A third said: "12 vs 11 with Igor Tudor."

A fourth posted: "Igor Tudor literally on the pitch to warn his players."

With Tottenham through as group winners despite the absence of suspended boss Conte, assistant Cristian Stellini spoke to BT Sport.

He said: "I enjoyed it when we won.

"I spoke with Antonio. He's tired because to watch from the crowd is not normal. He wasted a lot of energy.

"It's better to stay on the touchline because you live the game like the players are doing."
