Spurs boss Nuno admits club ‘not on the right track’ as flops booed off by furious fans after Man Utd loss

NUNO ESPIRITO SANTO admitted Tottenham are not ‘on the right track’ after being booed off the pitch by fans following the 3-0 defeat against Manchester United.

The Spurs faithful had already voiced their disapproval after the Portuguese gaffer decided to take off Lucas Moura in the 54th minute.

As Steven Bergwijn took to the pitch, fans of the north London club repeatedly chanted: “You don’t know what you’re doing.”

Nuno insists he does – but accepted things are not quite going to plan with Spurs.

The Portuguese boss told Sky Sports after the game: “We are not on the right track and understand the criticism – it’s part of football.

“When the team doesn’t perform the fans show they are not happy.

“It’s up to us to take it, tell them we are trying our best. We have to keep on trying and in a humble way tell them to support us.”

On his unpopular substitution, he added: “We did it because we wanted to get one vs ones with Stevie and try and break them down.”

Some Spurs supporters were also quick to lambast the former Wolves boss on social media.


One said: “Nuno definitely dropping a b*****k there.”

Another said: “Lucas Moura was practically Spurs best player as a 10 at times last season.

“Nuno should definitely have taken Lo Celso out instead.”

And another said: “Can’t understand Nuno subbing Moura. So conservative.”

One remarked: “Nuno the only coach more inept than Ole at the moment, & boy does it show.

“Taking off Moura’s work rate?! Boozy decision.”

To make matters worse for the Portuguese, United doubled their lead a matter of minutes after Moura’s withdrawal.

Uruguayan Edinson Cavani bagged United’s second of the game after latching on to a neat through-ball from Cristiano Ronaldo before Marcus Rashford added a late third.

And Sky Sports pundits Roy Keane and Graeme Souness were far from impressed with Spurs either, calling Nuno’s side “boring” and “mid-table at best”.

Keane said: “Spurs are boring. They’re boring to watch.

“You’re watching the game, and they are the home team, and you are thinking it’s as if the stadium is empty.”

Souness slammed: “Not a shot on target. They [the fans] will go home a frustrating group wondering where this team will go this year.

“It seems pretty obvious. Mid table at best.”
