Tim Sherwood Press Conference Smiling 12/02/2014

The big news on this day a year ago involved Tottenham Hotspur and their sacking of Tim Sherwood.

A year ago, on the 13th May 2014, there was plenty going on in the world of football.

Manchester United were being linked with a move for Mats Hummels, Jose Mourinho predicted the future, by saying there would be no battle for the Premier League in 2013-14 because Chelsea would wrap it up early while Arsenal were being linked with Angel Di Maria.

But the big news from the day came from Tottenham Hotspur, as Tim Sherwood made the headlines once again.

Sherwood sacked

It is a year to the day since Tottenham Hotspur relieved Tim Sherwood of his duties as head coach at White Hart Lane.

As reported by the BBC Spurs chairman Daniel Levy let him go, with reports of player unrest at the club over his selection policy and very public criticism of several players.

That had led to very well known fallouts with Sandro and others.

Sherwood had been in the role for six months after taking over from Andre Villas-Boas.

He left the club with the best win percentage of any Tottenham boss in Premier League history and was replaced with Mauricio Pochettino.

Now he is at Aston Villa and performing wonders at Villa Park. He recently guided Villa to a 1-0 win against Spurs at White Hart Lane - much to his visible pleasure.
