Former Tottenham star Anderton believes Sherwood exit was planned

Former Tottenham star Darren Anderton has hinted that the club may have planned to dismiss manager Tim Sherwood long before the decision was announced, according to Sky Sports.


Tim Sherwood


Anderton, who served Spurs as a player for 12 years between 1992-2004 believes that the only thing that may have kept Sherwood in the White Hart Lane hotseat was Champions League qualification, but speculates that even then the former title-winning Blackburn captain may have found himself looking for a job this summer.


Speaking to Sky Sports News, Anderton said: “They gave him 18 months and there was a break clause and maybe this was the way (Levy) thought it would go. There was a World Cup coming up and the top managers were still involved in the Champions League.


“"If Tim had got them into the top four then maybe he would have kept his job. Who knows? The team got into the Champions League two years ago under Harry Redknapp and once you're in it then you want it every year and that has to be the aim.”


Sherwood took the job following the departure of former boss Andre Villas-Boas but lasted only five months in the role before his dismissal earlier this week. Other managers have been reportedly monitored to take over at the club since long before Sherwood’s exit, with the 45-year-old earlier issuing a “hands-off” warning to any potential suitors to his job.


Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino is the early favourite to take over in north London, while Ajax boss Frank de Boer previously spoke about contact from the club regarding his future availability.


Man Utd target Louis van Gaal has also been previously linked to the job, though the Netherlands coach looks all but set on travelling to Old Trafford to become David Moyes’ permanent successor following Ryan Giggs’ temporary stint in charge.
