Sheringham: Spurs need to strengthen at the back

Tottenham Hotspur legend Teddy Sheringham has identified their defence as the north London club’s weakest link as they attempt to break into an intimidating top four this season.

Speaking in an exclusive interview for the new Stevenage FC boss – who scored 98 goals in seven seasons at White Hart Lane – remains unconvinced on the rear-guard Mauricio Pochettino appears to be settling with ahead of a critical campaign.

Having already brought in Toby Alderwerield, Kevin Wimmer and Kieran Tripper to the Spurs back-line, Sheringham wants to see Daniel Levy spend further.

 Tottenham have always been a bit bare on centre-halves. A real good leader at the back would be my first priority. Someone of Ledley King’s ilk would be lovely.”

Sheringham was talking ahead of this weekend’s Premier League opener at Old Trafford where two of his former clubs kick off 2015/16.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. I think we have strengthened at the back…..we bought 3 defenders ??? Barca are long time admirers of Vertonghen, Chelski are eyeing Rose, we had to fight hard to ward off Koeman for Toby and we have an experienced right back in both Walker and Trippier…….I must be missing something ….

  2. I think we will have a lot of draws & narrow wins/ losses this season as i think we will be netter at back , but as 1 person tweeted , where are the players to scare the opposition Clubs like , Stoke , Norwich & West Brom just keep a shape & know they can hold us. Still need DM , a playmaker , winger & 2 fwds. At home we should be playing 2 strikers , & most away games
