Tottenham news: Players make offer to furious fans that witnessed Newcastle drubbing | Football | Sport

Tottenham’s wounded players have rallied together and promised to reimburse their embarrassed supporters that travelled to the North East to witness their 6-1 capitulation to Newcastle on Sunday. Some Spurs supporters that made the 500-mile roundtrip left after just nine minutes after Jacob Murphy put the hosts 3-0 up with a stunning 25-yard strike that saw Hugo Lloris rooted to the centre of his goal.

It would only get worse, sadly, for the Tottenham supporters that attempted to weather the storm at the Magpies added two more goals through Alexander Isak to 5-0 up inside 20 minutes.

Harry Kane pulled one back in the second half but Newcastle were in no mood to let Tottenham off the hook as Callum Wilson added a shameful sixth.

Tottenham legend Chris Waddle was working on the game during Radio 5Live commentary and he urged the club’s players to consider refunding fans that travelled to St James’ Park.

To the surprise of many, the Spurs squad has now issued a collective statement, promising exactly that.

“We know this does not change what happened on Sunday and we will give everything to put things right at Manchester Untied on Thursday evening when again, your support will mean everything to us.

“Together – and only together – can we moving things forward.”
