Tottenham Hotspur players have decided to refund fans the cost of their match tickets after their 6-1 humiliating defeat at Newcastle United on Sunday.

Spurs were 5-0 down after 21 minutes of the game which led to interim manager Cristian Stellini been sacked by the club.

A statement from the players said: “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.”

Spurs’ allocation for the game was around 3,209, with prices ranging from £19 to £30, meaning the gesture is likely to have cost around £80,000.

The club said supporters were expected to receive the refund in their bank accounts within 24 hours.
