The Tottenham Hotspur players have expressed their understanding of the frustration and anger felt by fans following the 6-1 defeat at Newcastle United on Sunday. In a statement, they said, “It wasn’t good enough. We know words aren’t enough in situations like this but a defeat like this hurts.” As a gesture of appreciation for the support of their fans, both home and away, the players have offered to reimburse the cost of match tickets from St James’ Park. They understand that this does not change what happened on Sunday, but they are determined to put things right against Manchester United on Thursday evening. The London club is currently fifth in the Premier League table, six points behind third-placed Newcastle United and Manchester United in fourth. Newcastle have played a game fewer than Tottenham, while Manchester United have two games in hand. The players have asked for the support of their fans once again, as they strive to make amends for Sunday’s result.
