Nuno determined to win over supporters

Having lost three consecutive games in the league and conceded 9 goals in the process, Tottenham Hotspur manager Nuno Espirito Santo is under immense pressure to turn the results quickly. Spurs, who were at the top of the table after first three games are ranked 20th for shots and chances created this season, with Harry Kane failing yet to score a goal.

Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust have requested for a meeting with the club’s board amidst their poor run to discuss about the short and long-term vision. Despite the poor results Nuno remains optimistic and insisted he will be able to turn things around at the club. Speaking to reporters ahead of their Europa League Conference game against Mura, Nuno said “I’ve been told [the philosophy] and everybody knows.”

It’s football, everybody wants to play good. Everybody wants to play offensively, everybody wants to score. This is what we chase. Sometimes it’s not possible but we are aware that this is what we want to do but it takes a building process to achieve it and we are trying.”

The criticism is normal. Everybody knows how this industry works. When you don’t play good, when you don’t perform and results don’t go your way, criticism is something you have to deal with. We understand it and it’s up to us to react and change it.”

I’m not worried about the judgement. What I’m worried about is how we can play better. The judgement, the criticism and the opinion is all part of the game and we have to deal with that. That doesn’t interfere with the way we work. It can only distract us. My focus is on how we can improve.”

In terms of the fans, now is not the moment to ask them. Of course, we need them, we need their support because the players and the team need the support of the fans, but it’s not a moment to ask them.”

It’s a moment to deliver. We have to give them a team that is solid and playing good and then things will go back to normal.”

On asked about Kane’s goalless run, Nuno said “We want the best of all our players. We want the best of Harry, we want the best of all of them and only with the best of all of us we can go through this situation.”
