Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has spoken of his disappointment that Tottenham did not give Tim Sherwood more time.
And his comments have little to do with self-interest, and keeping Arsenal above their rivals, but come from one manager to another, and focus on the hire-and-fire culture so prevalent in the Premier League.
He told Arsenal.com: "For me if it's a Tottenham manager or any other manager it's always sad news when somebody loses his job.
"The only thing that looks a bit worrying is that the speed of the rotation level in the Premier League gets quicker and quicker. That's not a very good sign for the Premier League."
Sherwood was dismissed by Spurs yesterday, despite his win rate of 59 per cent eclipsing previous bosses Andre Villas-Boas and Harry Redknapp.
Chairman Daniel Levy felt that missing out on Champions League football once again meant Spurs had to re-focus, and Southampton's Mauro Pochettino is the bookies favourite to be offered the vacant role.
