Glenn slams paper talk

Posted on 26 March 2003  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Manager Glenn Hoddle has furiously hit out at this morning's newspaper suggestions of a training ground bust up with the players.

Two tabloid papers claimed the dispute took place at a meeting between the manager and the first-team squad following the recent home defeat by Liverpool but Glenn has insisted this is 'mischievous journalism'.

"I can categorically state these stories are not true - they are 100 per cent lies," said Glenn. "Yes, we did have a meeting after the Liverpool match, but it was a very positive one which ended with all of us looking forward to the next game.

"This is nothing but mischievous journalism".

Captain Teddy Sheringham backed the manager, saying: "There was no conflict between anyone. We know we are going through a difficult time but the players and the coaching staff are all working together to put that right. But these sort of stories do us no help at all."
