Tottenham were surprisingly beaten 1-0 by Premier League strugglers Norwich City at Carrow Road on Sunday afternoon to fall six points behind rivals Liverpool in the fourth and final Uefa Champions League qualifying berth for next season.
However, the recently appointed Spurs manager says that his side are ready to fight the Merseyside giants all the way for a place in Europe’s premier club competition.
“Good players and good teams come back when they’re down and that’s what we’ve got to do straight away,” Sherwood told Spurs TV.
“We certainly need to have character now to play in front of our home fans after the disappointment of losing to a team around the bottom of the league. That happens, what can you do? You can’t crawl into a corner and hide. You have to confront it and have a go.”
