Tottenham Hotspur were defeated 3-1 by Brentford despite taking the lead through Harry Kane’s effort, with supporters venting their frustrations at the club’s ownership group and Daniel Levy
Tottenham Hotspur’s season went from bad to worse as they suffered a 3-1 home defeat against Brentford, with supporters continuing to protest further against Chairman Daniel Levy.
Despite going ahead early through a stunning Harry Kane effort from range, Spurs’ season was epitomised in a severely underwhelming second-half collapse.
Bryan Mbuemo’s well-taken double saw the Bees recover to go ahead before Yoane Wissa put the result beyond doubt just two minutes from time.

Significant boos from the home fans were heard at full-time, with Spurs potentially dropping out of the top seven if Aston Villa beat Liverpool at Anfield.
Equally as loud, however, were chants aimed against the club’s ownership group ENIC and Levy himself. Such is the extent of anger, balloons with ‘Levy out’ written on them were seen on the pitch during the game.
In what was a painfully toxic atmosphere at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Levy could be seen being consoled by his wife Tracy Dixon as the game drew to a close.
The 61-year-old faces, arguably, his most important summer in charge of Spurs, with a sizeable squad overhaul required once a new managerial and director of football have been appointed.
Pre-match Levy wrote in his programme notes: “We shall spend the period ahead of next season working relentlessly to position our club for on-pitch success and football you will love to come and watch. Every element of the club’s operations is geared toward delivering that.”
