Former Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood believes that Ruben Loftus-Cheek is good enough to play for Manchester City if he is not wanted by Chelsea, report the Express.

It looks as though Sherwood has accepted that he is not good enough of a manager to manage at the top level and will instead spend his years as a pundit. After all, he failed at both Tottenham and Aston Villa.

These recent comments suggest that he’s as bad a pundit as he was a manager, suggesting that Loftus-Cheek is not wanted by Premier League champions Chelsea. The Express quote Sherwood, who says:

I feel this kid’s a Rolls Royce, I think he’s a real footballer, I think he’s putting himself in the shop window for someone like Man City. If Chelsea don’t want me, I’ll tell you what, Man City might want me’ – and he’s capabale of playing for them.”

“I think he’s good enough to play for Chelsea but he’s not going to get an opportunity there, so he’s done the right thing (by joining Crystal Palace).”

Sherwood is absolutely right in acknowledging Loftus-Cheek’s supreme talent, but to suggest that he’s not going to get a chance at Chelsea is laughable. Our track record is by no means commendable, but we’ve sent him out on loan to develop into the player he’s destined to be. He’ll be a regular for us one day, for sure – and NOT Man City.
