Angry Spurs fans clash in stands over Nunos future forcing security to act

Divided Tottenham fans were pulled apart by security during their defeat against Manchester United while rowing about under-fire manager Nuno Espirito Santo, according to reports.

Spurs have descended into a full-blown crisis under Nuno, slumping to their fifth loss in seven matches at home to United on Saturday night.

They initially fell a goal behind five minutes before the interval, with Cristiano Ronaldo's superb volley firing the visitors ahead.

And after the break, goals from Edinson Cavani and substitute Marcus Rashford capped a miserable evening for Spurs and piled even more pressure on Nuno, who is now facing a battle to keep his job.

According to The Athletic's Alex Kay-Jelski, a small section of the Spurs crowd had to be restrained by security due to disagreements over Nuno's future as manager.

Supporters in the East Stand were seen rowing about the Portuguese while their team trudged towards another comprehensive defeat under his stewardship.

The unrest in the stands epitomised a chaotic night for Spurs both on and off the pitch, marking a new low in what is proving a disastrous campaign.

Nuno was subjected to ferocious boos from supporters on several occasions throughout the game, but none were more deafening than when he replaced Lucas Moura with Steven Bergwijn 10 minutes into the second half.

With Spurs trailing 1-0 at the time, his decision to make a like-for-like change instead of hooking off midfielder Giovani Lo Celso left the home crowd seething, leading to damning chants of "you don't know what you're doing".

Sky Sports commentator Martin Tyler said as the jeers reached boiling point: "[Nuno] has 50,000 people telling him what they think of it."

When asked about the negative reaction and how he can convince fans that they're on the right track, Nuno said in his post-match interview: "We are not on the right track. This season is part of football.

"The fans suffer when you're not performing well. They have showed they're not happy. We keep on trying."
