Pleat hits back at Sherwood rumours

Posted on 9 November 2000  - 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).

David Pleat has hit back at suggestions in one of Thursday’s newspapers that we will be speaking to Watford about a move for Tim Sherwood.

The Mirror ran a story claiming our midfielder is set for a move to the Hornets based on a piece in Sunday’s News of the World and quoted our director of football saying: “Watford are an honest club and we will talk to them.”

However, David responded to the initial story on Sunday on our Media Monitor, on which he said: “Watford are an honest club and we will speak to them through the proper channels if they were to be interested.”

Speaking on Thursday, David said: “Inevitably there has been no enquiry and my initial reply was an unnecessary courtesy comment to a speculative line.”
