Dembele was a popular figure among Tottenham fans during his six-and-a-half-year spell in north London Tony Cascarino believes Harry Kane's goalscoring form will suffer under Jose Mourinho

Tottenham made it to the Champions League final later that year, but lost 2-0 to Liverpool in Madrid.

Trippier, who played in the final before completing a £20m move to Atletico Madrid in the summer, reckons Dembele was a big miss for Spurs in the European showpiece.

The England right-back told the Beautiful Game podcast: “They’ve got quality players, but, for me, the little fine margins of winning something is obviously when Mousa left. That’s my opinion.

“As a player you don’t want to see a player like Mousa leave, especially in January. Unless there was something that he needed to leave or whatever, I honestly don’t know.

“It didn’t make sense because he’s the fine margins of winning you the Champions League final. That’s how good he was.

Trippier and Dembele were teammates at Tottenham for three-and-a-half years

“He could have three players around him and you could give him the ball.

“The amount of respect the players had for him, and to see a player like that leave in January when you are going through a difficult season, for me, it didn’t make sense.

“That’s just my opinion. I don’t want to speak on any of the players’ thoughts on that.

“As soon as he goes it just saps it out of you because you’ve lost Mousa Dembele.”

Dembele arrived at Tottenham in a £15m deal from Fulham in 2012.

He went on to make 250 appearances for Spurs, but struggled with various injuries at times.
