Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood has split the opinion of sports journalists with his comments today, in which he lamented his current squad, claiming that many of them are playing for their futures, the Daily Mail reports.

“A lot of the players here are playing for their futures. They know that now,” Sherwood began.

‘They have to show they want to play for a giant of a club like Tottenham. Whether there’s an overhaul in the squad is for me to decide. But there will be changes. I want players here to prove they want to be here.
