Villas-Boas cheered by Spurs fans' reaction

31 October 2013, 16:39

London - Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas paid tribute to the club's fans after seeing his side overcome Hull City in a penalty shootout to reach the League Cup quarter-finals.

Villas-Boas had been critical of his side's supporters after their 1-0 victory over the same team in the Premier League on Sunday, accusing them of creating a "very tense, very negative" atmosphere.

However, after seeing his team beat Hull 8-7 on penalties following a gripping 2-2 draw at White Hart Lane on Wednesday, he said he was happy with their support.

"It was a great, entertaining game and the supporters were absolutely fantastic," the Tottenham manager said.

"To see their response after we suffered a setback was very pleasant. They can make that difference for us. It was a great atmosphere and it was great for the team to feel that empathy with the supporters."

Tottenham were drawn to face West Ham United at home in the quarter-finals in December.
