Tottenham midfielder Sandro has revealed that the team held an angry team meeting following their 4-0 defeat against Chelsea.
Having seen their hopes of a top 4 finish severely dented following the thrashing, manager Tim Sherwood accused his team of lacking character and being too nice.
Sandro said “We spent more than two hours in a meeting amongst the players and we said what we had to say,” he said.
“From now on, we know that we all have to listen when anyone says something. It was after the manager’s conference with the press.
“We had a meeting with the players. Sometimes one player got a bit more stressed out and we tried to calm him down and talk in a nice way. We spent about two hours that way. Every player had their fair share to say, put it that way. We all spoke amongst ourselves.
“For me, to be honest, it helped a lot because now I can go and tell another player, and another player can tell me. The manager likes it. Everyone can go for it now, and I think it will help.”
Tottenham’s next game is a North London derby with Arsenal and Sherwood and Sandro will both hope to see a reaction and an improved performance from the whole team.
