Tottenham boss Nuno Espirito Santo responds to fans booing off team after Man Utd loss – Diverse Bulletin

Nuno Espirito Santo has urged Tottenham fans to stick with the team in a heartfelt apology to supporters after the 3-0 defeat to Manchester United. His side delivered, without doubt, their worst performance of the season and the display raised alarms amongst the supporters in the stadium, who made their feelings known throughout the game.

Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring with an emphatic volley as he met Bruno Fernandes’ lofted pass with aplomb for fire past Hugo Lloris.

The lead was then doubled in the second half when Ronaldo teed up new strike partner Edinson Cavani, who clipped over Hugo Lloris and into the net.

Things got even worse for Spurs though, who failed to show any form of fight to get back into the game, as Marcus Rashford race through on goal and finished comfortably.

Supporters appeared to turn on Nuno though in the second half when he withdrew Lucas Moura and replaced the winger with Steven Bergwijn.

“We want Nuno out,” bellowed out from the stands, as the Tottenham boss cut a dejected figure on the sidelines.

But Nuno has now explained the substitution and asked Spurs fans to continue supporting the team during another difficult spell.

“We tried to get one versus one with Stevie [Bergwijn] as opposed to too many combinations inside,” he said.

“We are not on the right track and we totally understand the criticism, it’s part of football.

“When the team does not perform, the fans suffer, the fans are not happy.

“They showed they’re not happy, it’s up to us to take it, to tell them we tried our best.

“We are sorry because it’s not the performance we wanted and in a humble way, ask them to support us all the way.”
