JAKE'S 'THANKS' TO TIM
Posted 23 May 2012 3:21pm
Jake Livermore has paid tribute to the influence of Tim Sherwood after making such an impact last season.
The young midfielder featured in 38 matches in all competitions including seven starts in 23 appearances in the Premier League. He also started all eight matches in the Europa League.
Jake, 22, is a product of our Academy system and certainly did his miles out on loan and played regularly for Tim's development (Spurs XI) team both before and during his breakthrough campaign.
Speaking in May's Hotspur, Jake said: "There have been some great Spurs players over the years and to play with some of them and work with people like Les Ferdinand, Tim Sherwood and Pat Jennings, another who is around the club every day, makes it a good place to be.
“I like talking with Tim, in particular, because he also played centre midfield.
"He’ll just tell you things, like little fine tweaks; we work on numerous situations day-in day-out and we go over videos of games. It’s good because it gives you confidence and you know that he’s trying to help you become a better player.
“A lot of credit goes to him this season with what he’s done for me and the persistence he’s shown as well because he’s been a great help and has invested a lot of time in me. So I’m thoroughly grateful to him, Chris Ramsey and Les."
