Spurs centre-half Vlad Chiriches was caught on camera stumbling around in Romania at the weekend. In his defence it was snowing but does that explain it?

Chiriches was in the Spurs back four that was decimated by Manchester City last night prompting fans to take to social media to ask if the defender was in the right frame of mind.

Tim Sherwood did see the video before teh game but decided to playing him anyway and the player also escaped a fine.

"I did see that, yes," said a bemused but unfazed Sherwood. "I've fallen over in the snow before and all.

"He's had a weekend off and he's got to play well on Wednesday.

"No (he will not face a fine), he wasn't breaking any rules.

"For his own sake you wish he didn't (do it).

"He was unsteady on his legs by the looks of it; it must have been windy over there."

Here's the video so you can judge for youself.
