Tim Sherwood will be replaced as manager of Tottenham Hotspur at the end of the season, according to reports.
Sherwood was appointed as manager following the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas in December and despite an impressive opening few games for Spurs under Sherwood, the former Tottenham midfielder has failed to succeed with the club.
Sherwood has been under intense pressure following Tottenham’s lacklustre efforts recently. They were demolished by Liverpool last Sunday 4-0 and they also lost the north London derby in March at home 1-0.
Fourth place and Champions League is now a mountainous task and Tim Sherwood said the club had to be realistic regarding getting the fourth spot.
Tottenham have been ripped apart by most of their rivals this season, which has included losses to Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal. Sherwood has also been criticised for sitting in the stands during Tottenham’s recent games which has also seen them exit the Europa League to Benfica.
Sherwood says he has a better view of the game from the stands and that should he feel he can change the game, he will come down to the dug-out.
That approach has not gone down well with the Spurs faithful and Sherwood will leave the club at the end of the season.
Louis van Gaal is already a front-runner for the job.
