Sherwood resigned to speculation over Tottenham future

Tim Sherwood will be told to step down from his managerial post at Tottenham Hotspur at the end of the season, despite only being in charge for four months, according to reports from Sky Sports.

The 45-year-old former midfielder was appointed as the successor to the sacked Andre Villas-Boas on December 23rd on an 18 month contract until the end of next season and oversaw an impressive start - winning five of his first six games.

However poor recent results have seen his tenure come under increasing scrutiny, with an overall record of 10 wins and nine defeats from 22 games and ever dwindling hopes of a Champions League place.

The club now sit seventh in the league and also crashed out of the Europa League to Portuguese side Benfica, and outgoing Dutch coach Louis Van Gaal has been touted as an overwhelming favourite to replace the Englishman.

Speaking to the media on Friday Sherwood said: “I know the media have got a job to do and the speculation is not going to end when you have other managers and national managers touting for your job. They are the ones who are fuelling it.

"It is par for the course when you are managing a big club like Tottenham. I have got big enough shoulders – what I am supposed to do?”

It now appears that Sherwood will be replaced, and former Charlton manager Alan Curbishley believes if results had been better he may have been given a chance next season.

“There may be managers in work who may now look at the situation and say I fancy Spurs," Curbishley told Sky Sports News.

“If the results had been better and Tottenham were in the top four then I think Tim Sherwood could still have been the manager going forward."
