Tim Sherwood has ripped into yet another former Tottenham Hotspur player after he was asked about Lewis Holtby and his time in charge of him at White Hart Lane.
Sherwood, who managed Spurs between December 2013 to May 2014 was appearing as a pundit on BT Sport’s Score programme, which for those who are unfamiliar is the equivalent of Sky’s Soccer Saturday.
Holtby had scored Hamburg’s second goal of the match against Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga encounter on Saturday afternoon and when he was asked for his opinion on the midfielder and did not pull any punches.
He said with a wry smile: Yeah I had him for a short while, couldn’t wait to get rid of him!”
Sherwood then backtracked on his comment: “Nah, it wasn’t my doing to be fair. He’s a good lad, an industrious midfield player but not at Tottenham’s level for where they want to be.
“He was a favourite for the crowds, he was energetic and got about. Waved his fists around and try to kid them on as much as he could.
Sherwood, earlier this week had some harsh criticism of Davinson Sanchez, labeling the defender as “a mistake waiting to happen”.
Since leaving Spurs, Sherwood has had failed spells as manager of Aston Villa and director of football at Swindon Town.
