Tim Sherwood Leaves Spursby Mick Bates / 13 May 2014, 12:41Tweet
The managerial merry-go-round is certainly stepping up a gear, as one of the worst kept secrets is finally realised as Tim Sherwood leaves his managerial post after being sacked by Tottenham Hotspur.
A statement from Spurs Chairman Daniel Levy read: ""We agreed an 18-month contract with a break clause at the end of the season and we have now exercised that option"
Sherwood had been a coach at Spurs since 2008 and took on the role of manager following the sacking of Andre Villa-Boas in December last year following the embarrassing 5-0 home defeat at the hands of Liverpool. During his time at the club, the former Norwich, Blackburn and Spurs midfielder oversaw 28 matches in charge and had a 50% win record. Spurs finished in sixth place in the 2013/14 Premier League season missing out on the Europa League spot to Everton who finished three points above them.
Sherwood will do doubt be back in management very soon as he is already being linked to the vacant positions at Norwich, Brighton and West Brom.
Favourite to take on the job and be the next Spurs manager is current Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino, who is thought to be considering his position at Saints. The Argentine still has a year left to run on his current contract but is set to discuss his future with the club shortly, the rumours surrounding the sale of star players Adam Lallana and Luke Shaw are sure to have an impact on his decision.
