Jamie Redknapp, football pundit and son of former Spurs boss Harry, says Andre Villas-Bonas has "paid the price" for "dismantling one of the best teams" the club ever had.
Jamie told Sky Sports News:
"When you get beat 5-0 at home it's a bit of a tell-tale sign.
It's not something Tottenham fans are accustomed to and I feel sorry to a certain extent for the fans.
Having seen the team that was built- you look at Gareth Bale on the wing- and you've ended up with players who aren't in the same league."
Jamie, who played for Spurs between 2002 to 2005, says the club's technical director Franco Baldini should also be held accountable.
"They've decided for one reason or another to dismantle one of the best sides Tottenham ever had over the last couple of years.
The players that have been brought in have been nowhere near that level."
