Spurs midfielder Sandro has claimed the players argued amongst each other for two hours following the weekend's Premier League defeat to Chelsea.
Head coach Tim Sherwood tore into his players following the 4-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge, suggesting that some of the players involved would have forgotten about the game by the time they left the ground.
Sandro, however, has denied that was the case—saying the players stayed around to debate what had gone wrong.
In a report from the Daily Mirror:
Now, the north Londoners' Brazilian midfielder Sandro has revealed strong words were also spoken behind closed doors—first by Sherwood and then in a heated exchange involving the whole squad.
'We spent more than two hours in a meeting amongst the players and we said what we had to say,' Sandro said. 'Everyone was shouting.
'Every player had their fair share to say, let’s put it this way. We all spoke amongst ourselves.
'The manager said the same thing to us as what he said to the press. We had our meeting post-match—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.
'In the past, we probably didn't say anything because we didn't want anyone to take it the wrong way. From now on we will pull our sleeves up and tell whoever is not doing their job.
'It is not only the new players. It is everyone. No-one said things before. But now everyone knows. I think everyone can go for it now. This is going to help us.
'We need to show a bit more in next match, to tell the manager that we care. We will do that.'
