Tottenham have made the decision to replace current Head Coach Tim Sherwood at the end of the season, according to Sky
The decision comes despite the 5-1 victory over Sunderland on Monday, a result which came after a day of intense speculation surrounding Sherwood’s future, which has been under question for much of his time in charge with Dutch national team coach Louis van Gaal and Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino among those touted as possible replacements.
Sherwood was originally given a contract until the end of next season upon replacing Andre Villas-Boas in December. The 45-year-old, who was promoted from his position as manager of the club’s U-21 side, has won 11 and lost 9 of his 23 matches in charge until now.
Skeaking before the Sunderland game, Sherwood insisted he was not affected by the speculation. He said: “Certainly not for me, its business as usual for me. I’m trying to set up this team.
“We’ve worked all week on how we’re going to play and it shouldn’t affect the players either. We’re all professional and we need to get on with the job. We have still got points to fight for here, six cup finals in my eyes and I’m sure the players see it the same way. If we can get some positive results who knows where it might take us?”
A Tottenham statement refused to confirm that Sherwood was to leave the club. It read: “The board will meet with Tim Sherwood at the end of the season to review how things have progressed. Anything else at this stage is speculation.”
