The coach has now called on the fans to stay behind the team, further defending Shkodran Mustafi, who has been faulted after Palace's loss.
“I say to our supporters, 'Help our players.' Because I want every player to have big confidence,” he said as quoted by the club's website.

The Gunners will have the chance to pick themselves up when they travel to face Wolves, knowing a win will take them to third, above London rivals Tottenham.
The race for a top-four finish is heated, with Tottenham, Chelsea, Manchester United all having the chance of qualifying for the Champions League, with only three matches left.
