Nuno Espirito Santo lamented his team’s performance after a disappointing -03 defeat to Manchester United at home. The fifth defeat of the season puts enormous pressure on Nuno’s future at the club as Tottenham languish eighth in table after consecutive defeats.
Speaking to Tottenham’s official website after the defeat Nuno admitted he was disappointed with his team’s performance. He added “It was a very tough afternoon, very disappointing. We didn’t perform as we wanted. I truly believe that we are better than what we showed today.”
“We started the game well, didn’t really create much but had situations where we could have done better. We conceded a goal that we knew, a situation that United create after a second phase and, after that, we started the second half very badly. We didn’t recover the momentum of the game.”
On asked about the fans booing his team, Nuno said “What can we say? It’s the reality. When our fans don’t see what they expect, what they want, they are going to show to you, they are going to boo.”
“We have to be strong and accept it, recognise that it’s not words that are going to take away the anger they are experiencing at this moment, only actions. We have to do much better in our actions on Thursday (Vitesse at home in the UEFA Europa Conference League) and the next one (Everton away in the Premier League next Sunday) so we can change this around.”
“All the games are important, Thursday, the next one and after that, the next one. We have to stick together. It’s the only way. Let’s try to stick together.”
