Sherwood angered by ‘gutless’ Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur manager Tim Sherwood reacted with fire following his side’s heavy 4 - 0 defeat to Chelsea, the latest in a series of poor results against top four rivals, claiming a lack of ‘guts’ and ‘pride’ reports the Daily Telegraph.

Sherwood tore in to his Spurs side after several defensive errors condemned them to defeat, which further damaged their fading hopes of Champions League qualification, something that could decide whether Sherwood keeps his job in the summer having succeeded Andre Villas Boas in December.


It is the fourth time this season the team has conceded four or more goals to a side above them in the table, having conceded 11 goals in two games against Manchester City, as well as losing 5-0 at home to Liverpool.


Sherwood, visibly upset after the defeat, said: “You can’t legislate for the capitulation – you can’t have that. Lack of characters, too many of them too nice to each other. You need to show a bit more guts and not want to be someone’s mate all the time.


“They need to drag it out of each other. It hurts me and I won’t forget about this when we hit the motorway, but some might. We’ve got the Europa League on Thursday and we owe the fans a performance.


“We let them down again on the big occasion. You won’t finish in the top four if you don’t beat top teams. You’re miles away unless you beat the top teams. There have been too many blips. The club talks about fourth. Wake up.”


This latest defeat leave Spurs four points off of fourth placed Manchester City, having played three games more, with the task of finishing in the top four looking all the more difficult.


Tottenham face Benfica in the Europa League on Thursday, before difficult looking games against Arsenal, Southampton and Liverpool this month.
