Fans of Tottenham Hotspur, according to Rio Ferdinand’s YouTube channel, have had it up to here with Emerson Royal.
The remarks were made after Tottenham’s 2-1 loss to Liverpool on Sunday at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the Premier League, and the former Manchester United defender was asked about it.
Spurs manager Antonio Conte saw his team lose 2-1 against the Reds in their own stadium.

“You glanced to the right-back, Royal,” Ferdinand said. His self-assurance has taken a serious hit. The pressure from the fans is on him.
We believe that Emerson Royal, the right back for Tottenham Hotspur, will make the necessary adjustments to his play and develop as a result.
The ex-Barcelona player is still young (23), so he has time to develop and grow.
Remember that the Brazil international was a right back before he transferred to Tottenham from Barcelona.
Emerson, who was signed by Tottenham for a reported £25.8 million (BBC Sport), has been used as a right wing back by Antonio Conte.
It is imperative at this point that the 23-year-old makes every effort to swiftly learn the ropes of his new role, and he is making that effort.
Things are going to work out.
The best course of action for Tottenham supporters is optimism.
Emerson will play a key role in Spurs’ pursuit of Premier League and UEFA Champions League glory this season.
