PICTURES: Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood's bust-up with Jorge Jesus

Tottenham WHL

Tottenham head coach Tim Sherwood involved in a heated exchange with Benfica manager.

Tottenham head coach Tim Sherwood lost his rag at the end of the club's match with Benfica, accusing the opposing boss of 'doing a Theo Walcott'.

Just like the Arsenal winger antagonised the crowd in the FA Cup clash against Spurs by holding his finger up to represent the scoreline, he felt Benfica boss Jorge Jesus was doing the same by holding up three digits at the end of the 3-1 win.

Speaking to the media after the game, he said: “I thought his team were very good and showed a lot of class - it’s just a shame he didn’t.

“In the first two minutes he was coming over to the fourth official saying I was stepping in his box.

“He doesn’t mind himself, does he, to be fair? Waving goodbye like that [with three fingers]? It lacks class. Why would anyone do that?

“He’s got a good side, of course he has, but, nah, not for me thank you. I have no intention of speaking to him."

Jorge Jesus attempted to downplay the incident after the game, insisting the three-figure gesture was to goalscorer Luisao - wearing the number three shirt.
