Ahead of Aston Villa clash against Tottenham Hotspur this weekend, manager Tim Sherwood has said he was a success during his time with the London outfit before his exit in the summer, reports BBC Sport.
Sherwood was axed following the 2013/14 campaign, with former Southampton head coach Mauricio Pochettino brought replacing him. While somewhat expected, the 46-year-old’s departure at White Hart Lane did still surprise many given his impressive 59% win ratio at the club – a better percentage than any other Spurs manager in Premier League. And he feels his time in London was a great success as manager and in his years as development coach.
Aston Villa lock horns with Tottenham this weekend, with the Midlands outfit desperate to pick up some points to boost their hopes of survival. Sherwood’s men are coming off the back of a 3-3 draw against Queens Park Rangers in the Premier League, and will have some confidence of getting a result against an inconsistent Spurs side. And with Sherwood returning to face his former employers, the Villa boss said he’s happy at his club, but felt he did a good job as head coach of Tottenham before.
“I knew it would be a tough job at Tottenham and it proved that. But I was very successful, both as a development coach and as a manager,” he said.
