Tottenham sacked Tim Sherwood and now are on the lookout for a new coach with Frank de Boer and Mauricio Pochettino appearing to be genuine candidates on taking the hot seat of the club.
Rafael Benitez could be another option as the Spanish coach has experienced an impressive debut season with Napoli after being appointed as the manager of the Italian club on May 27 of 2013.
During the past 6 years, Tottenham has gone through 5 managers and even though Tim Sherwood consistently stated his desire to remain in charge of the squad, he was sacked after only 5 months since he had replaced Andre Villas-Boas.
“We appointed Tim mid-season as someone who knew both the players and the club. We agreed an 18-month contract with a break clause at the end of the season and we have now exercised that option. On behalf of the Club, I should like to state our thanks for all his efforts during his years with us. We wish him great success in his managerial career’’.
“Moving forward, now the season is over, we shall embark on the process of finding a new Head Coach. We have a talented squad and exciting young players coming through. We need to build on this season, develop our potential and inspire the kind of performances that we associate with our great club.” Chairman of Tottenham, Daniel Levy said.
Tim Sherwood guided Tottenham to the 6th spot of the Premier League. The English coach was questioned for his playing style but Sherwood defended his actions and performances of his players as he went on saying that he managed on getting a 59% win ratio in the Premier League during his time in charge of the squad but it was still not enough for him to hold on to his position in the club as he was eventually sacked.
