The players also apologized for their performance and said they would do everything in their power to return as they fight to finish in the top four with six games left in the Premier League.po
The loss also led to the Spurs firing interim coach Christian Stellini on Monday, with Ryan Mason taking over as head coach until a replacement can be found.
As a team, we understand your frustration, your anger. It wasn’t good enough. We know words aren’t enough in situations like this, but trust us, a loss like this hurts a lot, the Spurs players said in a statement.
We appreciate your support, both at home and away, and with that in mind, we would like to reimburse fans for tickets to the game against St. James Park.
We know that this will not change what happened on Sunday, and we will do everything we can to make things right against Manchester United on Thursday night, when, again, your support will mean everything to us.
Spurs are fifth in the standings with 53 points, six points behind fourth-place United, but have played two more games.
Spurs have also created a new Fan Advisory Board (FAB) to keep fans informed of all the club’s decisions.
The FAB will meet four times a year, one of its representatives will attend club board meetings four times a year, while working groups will be set up to address fan concerns.
Last June, the English Major League clubs agreed on a plan to improve the league’s collective offer to fans, which included the introduction of Fan Advisory Boards.
The FAB would be responsible for a wide range of off-field issues, such as the club’s strategic vision and goals, off-field performance updates, priorities and plans, match day operational issues…stadium issues and plans, the Spurs said.
The first FAB meeting is expected to take place in July.
