Rumours on the social media site spread following Spurs' 4-0 defeat at the hands of Liverpool last week that Sherwood had struck one of his players in a dressing room bust-up.
Sherwood told reporters: "They have been great. I haven't got a problem with the players. It was incredible the way that it gathered so much pace.
"I was getting family and friends texting me saying: 'Why did you do it?' They didn't say: 'Did you??' It was all 'Who did you hit? Who did you hit?!'
"But the players know I want the best for the club. And that helps them out because it means I want the best for them. I am not going to suffer fools though. That is the way I manage."
Tottenham face Sunderland at White Hart Lane later today.
