Tim talk gets the monster munch
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 scotched talk linking Tim Sherwood with a return to Blackburn Rovers.
The London Evening Standard ran the story as a back page lead on Monday and the Daily Star and Mail also carried reports on Tuesday.
It is suggested that the Lancashire club are prepared a £1m promotion bonus in a bid to lure Sherwood away from White Hart Lane and it is claimed that Rovers have already had a £3m bid rejected.
Rovers, third in the first division with a game in hand on second placed Bolton, were said to be willing to increase Sherwood’s salary by as much as £7,000-a-week.
But our director of football suspects that the forces of a larger-than-life agent are at work with this bout of speculation.
"We have had no contact at all from Blackburn Rovers," confirmed Pleat. "This looks like a case of a monster, monster agent trying to make monster, monster mischief."
