"The fans paid their ticket, they are free to express themselves the way they want to express. But my job is to protect my players and I think Romelu is one of the players that should be untouchable in terms of the respect from everyone. It's not one ball or goal that his the post or one save from the opposition goalkeeper that can make Romelu's contribution below the top level. He is playing well and, yes, I have to protect my players and Romelu always deserve that because what he does for the team is fantastic. So for me untouchable in my team and also untouchable in the respect and support he deserves from the fans. But, as I said, the supporters pay for their tickets."
