Kaboul: Sherwood has Tottenham support

Younes Kaboul has revealed the full Tottenham Hotspur squad is behind Head Coach Tim Sherwood, Sky Sports has reported.

Tim Sherwood

Sherwood replaced Andre Villas-Boas in December, taking his first senior coaching post having previously worked within the youth set-up at White Hart Lane.

As a player he won the Premier League title with Blackburn Rovers and later joined Spurs before ending his career under Harry Redknapp at Portsmouth. Redknapp then appointed Sherwood as a coach when he was at Tottenham.

Kaboul feels that Sherwood’s long service to the London club and experience as a player means he is well-equipped for the role.

“He deserves it,” Kaboul said. “He knows the club very well, he's been here for a long time and he knows exactly what he's doing.

“He learned a lot in the past and the best fact is that he played football at a high level. He won the title with Blackburn in 1995, so he has plenty of experience. His playing career is important because he knows what it's like for us.

“We don't waste time on other stuff because he went through everything and he understands. He knows the game perfectly.

“I remember that when Harry Redknapp was manager, Tim and Les Ferdinand and Chris Ramsey [two of Sherwood’s coaching staff] would come to nearly every game.

“Wherever we were playing, it didn't matter, they would be there. They would talk to us about how to deal better with certain situations on the pitch, and even then I could see Tim becoming a manager. He just had to be patient and wait for his chance.”

After beating Newcastle 4-0 at St James’ Park on Wednesday Tottenham are fifth in the table, three points behind Champions League rivals Liverpool.
