The players of Tottenham have volunteered to reimburse the fans who traveled to St James’ Park to witness their team’s 6-1 defeat against Newcastle United on Sunday.
Newcastle dealt a blow to Spurs’ chances of qualifying for the Champions League as they outclassed them. Just 21 minutes into the match, Newcastle had already taken a commanding 5-0 lead, making it the second-fastest a team has achieved such a feat in Premier League history.
Tottenham concede nine goals in their last two games
The only other instance was when Manchester City did so against Watford in September 2019. They Also axed their interim manager Stellini after their recent poor results.
Tottenham players statement reads: “As a squad, we understand your frustration, your anger. It wasn’t good enough,”
“We know words aren’t enough in situations like this but, believe us, a defeat like this hurts. Spurs players appreciate your support, home and away, and with this in mind we would like to reimburse fans with the cost of their match tickets from St James’ Park.
“We know this does not change what happened on Sunday and we will give everything to put things right against Manchester United on Thursday when, again, your support will mean everything to us. Together – and only together – can we move things forward.”
