Saturday was a heartbreaking night for everyone involved with Tottenham Hotspur, as the club suffered a loss in its first ever appearance in the final of the UEFA Champions League.
Spurs had beaten Borussia Dortmund in the round of 16 of the tournament to set up a fascinating tie with Manchester City in the quaterfinal.
Tottenham managed to win that encounter via the away goals rule on a dramatic night at the Etihad stadium which saw them stun Pep Guardiola’s side.
What followed that was a magnificent comeback show away to Ajax in the semifinal as they produced another comeback.
Despite all of that, Spurs’ hard work was undone after less than 30 seconds in the final as Moussa Sissoko was adjudged to have handled the ball in the penalty area.
It was a controversial call from the referee, and even Leicester City star Harry Maguire showed his sympathy for Spurs.
The Foxes’ defender, who has been linked to Spurs with a £60m price tag, shared how he felt about the penalty kick decision on social media.
