Tottenham Hotspur’s interim manager Cristian Stellini has been speaking to the press ahead of the weekend’s fixtures and has commented on the abuse Davinson Sanchez received from his own fans last weekend.
Sanchez has played a bit-part role this season, with just 21 appearances in all competitions for Spurs (Transfermarkt).
The defender has come under scrutiny during his Spurs career for a number of mistakes and poor performances.
However, in his most recent appearance against Bournemouth last week, Sanchez was the victim of booing from the Spurs fans.
Sanchez was removed from the game in the second half and was seen to be visibly affected by the reaction from the home fans during the defeat to Bournemouth.
It remains to be seen whether Sanchez will feature again in the upcoming game against Newcastle United and what the crowd’s reaction will be if he does play on Sunday.
Speaking to Football.London, Stellini discussed the matter and revealed what he and Sanchez had spoken about in light of recent events.
He said: “I spoke with Davinson. We had a good conversation.
“Of course it’s tough for a player to come in and come out from the pitch. It’s the type of things that happened to me as a player.
“It’s not the best moment. It’s the type of thing that has to give you a good reaction. He’s a good guy and he understands the situation.
“It’s very rare [this kind of booing from your own fans] and I think it happened to some players.
“It’s important your reaction to have the fans back with you. I want to help him have this situation.”

No matter how bad Sanchez may have been in the past or indeed during the Bournemouth game, it wasn’t fair to single him out in the way the Spurs fans did. Hopefully it won’t have a negative impact on him going forward.
