Lennon dismisses Sherwood rumours

Tottenham Hotspur winger Aaron Lennon has rejected rumours that head coach Tim Sherwood punched one of his players after their loss at Liverpool.

In the wake of Spurs' 4-0 defeat at Anfield on Sunday, speculation on social media suggested Sherwood had hit a member of the Tottenham team in the dressing room.

However, Lennon has dismissed the suggestions outright, writing on his Twitter account: "Today was not good enough and we let everyone down, but the rumours about the boss hitting someone are b******s, crazy how powerful twitter is."

Spurs are currently sixth in the Premier League table, four points behind fifth-placed Everton who have a game in hand.

Sherwood, who replaced the sacked Andre Villas-Boas in December, has recently come under pressure at White Hart Lane, after four losses in his last six league games.
