Nuno calls for support after Tottenham fans turn to manager in sad Man United loss

| Top stories | Yahoo news

With Spurs lagging behind Cristiano Ronaldo’s superb strike in the first half, there were boos over Nuno’s decision to replace Lucas Moura with Steven Bergwijn in the 54th minute of Saturday’s 3-0 loss and chants of “you don’t know what you are doing” from the head coach.

Further boos followed second-half goals from Edinson Cavani and substitute Marcus Rashford, and the final whistle, while there were also chants of ‘we want Levy out’ towards the president. Daniel Levy.

A beleaguered Nuno said the fan reaction was “understandable” after a fifth loss in 10 league games, but ended his post-match press conference by pleading for support.

Asked about the boos, the Portuguese said: “I only think about the next training session because no words will solve this situation.

“The boos and disappointment from the fans is understandable when they don’t see the team they expect, a team that should be playing – and I really believe we are better than what we showed today – they will boo us to change the mood.

“I think we can do better and I trust these players,” Nuno added. “I will support them and stay with them until the end, but I humbly ask the fans to continue to help and support us to make a change.”

Nuno insisted that Spurs’ performance, which followed the 1-0 loss to West Ham last weekend, was not due to his inability to communicate with his team.

“You can have the right message, the right idea and things can go wrong [to plan]”He said.” It’s not because of the message or the understanding of the message. This is the game of football. We started well, we got the ball and we didn’t hurt too much.

“We had a goal that was not [allowed]. We conceded in a situation we knew could happen and lost our momentum. In the second half, we take the message back but it’s about what’s happening on the pitch. “
