Tottenham coach Sherwood impressed by Gallas debut

William Gallas turned out for Tottenham in a friendly last night.

Gallas played 70 minutes as our Spurs XI beat QPR 3-1 in a training ground friendly on Tuesday.

Coach Tim Sherwood was delighted with the defender's performance alongside fellow senior professionals Jermaine Jenas and David Bentley, who both completed 90 minutes as boss Harry Redknapp looked on at Spurs Lodge.

"It was William's first game for a while and it was excellent for the younger boys to play alongside him," Sherwood told the club's website.

"He showed how he squeezes play up the pitch, how he uses his body and he manages the game superbly.

"Jermain Jenas was outstanding, picking the ball up, running at QPR, getting into their box and causing them problems.

"The energy was fantastic centrally from JJ and Jake Livermore, who has played three or four games for us like that now."
