Schuster pleads with angry Malaga fans to get behind players

Malaga coach Bernd Schuster has pleaded with fans to get behind the team.

Malaga coach Bernd Schuster has pleaded with fans to get behind the team.

Fans inside La Rosaleda reacted angrily to Malaga throwing away a 3-0 lead to draw 3-3 with Osasuna last week in a Copa del Rey tie, booing the players and calling for Schuster to be sacked.

"You have to be patient with this team, and we really need our fans," Schuster told reporters ahead of the Getafe game.

"We think that things will get better."

On the reception his team can expect from their fans, the German said: "All the players are professionals and it's not something that should make us nervous.

"If the fans criticise the coach, the players shouldn't become nervous. We have to win over our fans with our attitude. Malaga's support is like any other - the more we are attacking our opponents' area and taking shots, the more they get behind us.

"We have to learn that results shouldn't make us nervous. We have to remember what we are capable of."
