Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli threw a strop when substituted during their Champions League defeat at RB Leipzig.
Alli slung his boots, then a bottle when he was hooked as Spurs lost their last-16 first leg to Timo Werner's penalty.
But boss Jose Mourinho said: “I think he was angry with his performance, not me. I think he understands why I took him off - and the team improved."
But he suffered a disappointing night as Spurs struggled to fashion many clear cut chances.
