Players of Tottenham Hotspur are reimbursing Spurs supporters the amount they paid to watch the 6-1 loss in the hands of Newcastle United at St. James Park on Sunday. 

The Lilywhites were 5-0 behind after just 21 minutes of the clash and caretaker manager Cristian Stellini has since been dismissed due to the humiliating defeat.

The Tottenham players said in a statement: “As a squad, we understand your frustration, your anger.

“It wasn’t good enough. We know words aren’t enough in situations like this but a defeat like this hurts.”

The North London side allocation for the match was 3,209 seats, with prices between the region of £19 to £30, implying the move is likely to cost about £80,000.

Tottenham Hotspur said fans are expected to receive the reimbursement in the bank accounts within twenty-four (24) hours.
