Tottenham fans go after Nuno Espirito Santo during a mutinous night against Man United … the beginning of the end?

With Spurs down 1-0 to Cristiano Ronaldo’s strike in the first half, Nuno’s decision to replace Lucas Moura with Steven Bergwijn in the 54th minute was met with loud boos from the Tottenham Hotspur stadium and chants of ” You don’t know what you ‘re doing at the manager’s.

It was a dark moment for Nuno and, in all fairness, could mark the beginning of the end for the Portuguese, who quickly lost the fan base during a series of despicable performances.

There were further boos after Edinson Cavani and his replacement Marcus Rashford secured a comfortable victory for United in the second half, and Spurs fans who remained on the ground also voiced their disapproval at the final whistle. .

The anger felt directed at the head coach rather than the players, while there were also chants of “we want Levy out” from President Daniel Levy at a mutinous party.

Last season Jose Mourinho hung on to his job long after results and performances deteriorated and the atmosphere around the club deteriorated, but he never faced direct pressure from supporters while they remained locked out of the stadium.

Nuno not only misses Mourinho’s charisma and winning record, he is now potentially facing an open revolt from Spurs fans, which will surely be difficult to recover from.

Nuno has encountered various difficulties since his appointment but it was nonetheless difficult to blame the fans for their disdain as Spurs again failed to shoot on target against a United side who should have been there for the take after their humiliation 5-0. at the hands of Liverpool last weekend.

Nuno’s boos contrasted sharply with the support given to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer by traveling United fans, who chanted their manager’s name on several occasions after Cavani doubled United’s lead and concluded victory in the middle of the game. second half.

The game was dubiously dubbed “El Sackico” by some supporters, reflecting the intense pressure placed on both managers, but previously Solskjaer seemed to be the only one really at risk of losing his job in the coming days.
