Teddy denies betting claims

Posted on 10 August 2001  - 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).

Supporters should ignore a damaging, totally false and libellous e-mail currently in circulation concerning Teddy Sheringham.

The message, clearly distributed solely to cause trouble, suggests that Teddy placed bets on Spurs losing matches during his first spell at White Hart Lane.

Teddy totally refutes the accusations and the club is totally behind him. We are now actively engaged in trying to trace the culprit with a view to legal proceedings.

“This is complete rubbish. The accusations are so ridiculous that I can’t work out where they might have come from. I have also heard of the existence of actual betting statements — well whoever’s supposed to have them, I’d like to see them.”
