Tottenham transfers: Sherwood fires stark warning to Spurs squad

Tim Sherwood warns his Tottenham Hotspur squad that they are playing for their futures at the club

Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood

Tim Sherwood has warned his Tottenham squad that they are playing for their futures at the club between now and the end of the season.

Spurs’ bid for a top-four finish took a heavy blow on Saturday as they went down 4-0 at Chelsea to leave them fifth in the table and 13 points behind the leaders.

I want players here who want to play for the club

Tim Sherwood

And Sherwood has demanded an improvement from his whole squad ahead of Sunday’s north London derby against Arsenal.

“I will see who I need to keep and see who I need to bring in,” said Sherwood.

“They’ve got that chance between now and the end of the season to prove that they want to play for a great giant of a club like Tottenham Hotspur.

“Over a period of time there will always be changes – you’re going to need new personnel, you’re going to have players who perhaps want to move on.

“I want players here who want to play for the club – and they’ve got from now until the end of the season to show that they’re playing for the club and not themselves.”
