Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Sherwood sacking - 'More experience, could have been different'

White Hart Lane 4

Tim Sherwood was sacked as Tottenham Hotspur boss yesterday.

Tim Sherwood is looking for a new job this morning after he was relieved of duties as Tottenham Hotspur’s head coach yesterday.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy confirmed the club were exercising a break clause in the 18-month deal Sherwood signed during last season to replace Andre Villas-Boas at White Hart Lane.

Sherwood may not have to wait too long for his next job as West Bromwich Albion have emerged as a possible destination for the Londoner along with several sides in the football league.

Sherwood’s results record wasn’t actually that bad but he paid the price for failing to guide the side into the top four, which would have meant Champions League football next season.

He was also superb with the way he man managed his players, bringing high profile and key stars back into the side as he breathed new life into the Tottenham career of Emmanuel Adebayor.

The break clause that was inserted into his deal is likely to have been based around that top four spot as the North London club prepare for another season of playing Europa League football on a Thursday night.

Louis van Gaal had been tipped to take over at Tottenham this summer, but he now seems destined for a move to Manchester United after the World Cup.

Tottenham is one of the best jobs for any manager in European football as the club enjoy competitive resources and a good support base.

Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly the new front runner for the position after impressing since he took over at St Marys.

Pochettino is credited with the development of players like Luke Shaw and Adam Lallana, both in the England World Cup squad and both now being tipped to seal £30 million transfers to Manchester United and Liverpool respectively.

Here’s what Tottenham fans have made on Twitter of the club’s decision to move Sherwood on.
