Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas says fans have every right to boo their own team and manager.

Villas-Boas himself has been subjected to boos from some Spurs fans on occasion this season, but he insists supporters should be entitled to air their views if they think something is not right with their club.

He said: "The fans have the right to everything in my opinion.

"They are the ones who breathe the biggest passion for the football club, they are the essence and they breathe the values of the football club.

"They are entitled to whatever they want to say or chant; disappointment, belief, encouragement, positiveness.

"It is all down to them, football is about them, it is about their passion. They have the right more than anybody to show that.

"(As a manager) you have to take it. Sometimes we don't like what we hear but that's life."
