Tim Sherwood: How I made Emmanuel Petit cry

Tim Sherwood is a true football man. An accomplished, intelligent midfielder and a natural leader, he captained Blackburn Rovers to their famous Premier League title win in season 1994-95.

In part one of our chat, he describes how a coach at Norwich changed his attitude; he gave up on showboating and grew up, into a team player. The transformed Tim was hot property, and he explains how Kenny Dalglish recruited him for his Blackburn project from under the noses of Derby County. Glory beckoned.

Rovers had hard, winning players like David Speedie and Gordon Cowans. Tim himself could be tough – he once pulled out Arsenal legend Emmanuel Petit’s hair band and made him cry. Seriously, that actually happened.
