Goal Singapore readers skeptical of Sherwood’s appointment

AVB’s departure has paved the way for Tim Sherwood to stake his place as permanent Spurs manager
Daniel Levy has wielded his axe yet again, with Andre Villas Boas the latest managerial casualty from the Tottenham hot seat.

AVB was relinquished of his post after a series of uninspiring and embarrassing performances, which included a 6-0 drubbing at the hands of Manchester City, a 3-0 defeat at West Ham and more recently, a 5-0 thumping at the hands of Liverpool.

As a result, Spurs technical coordinator Tim Sherwood has been placed in temporary charge of the first team alongside Chris Ramsey and Les Ferdinand following the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas on Monday morning.

It is understood that Sherwood will be offered the job permanently if he impresses as interim manager.

The 44-year-old is highly regarded in the Spurs camp, with some going as far as labeling him as Tottenham’s Pep Guardiola, the current Bayern Munich manager who made his name coaching Barcelona B before establishing a dynasty with the club’s first team.

However, Goal Singapore readers are skeptical of his longevity in the club, especially with Levy’s infamous reputation of culling managers in the club over the years.

Majority of readers were skeptical when asked whether Sherwood can stake a claim for a permanent job should Spurs somehow end up in the top four of the Premier League.

50% voted that Levy will fire him regardless of where they will finish this season, while 41.8% of readers voted that Sherwood wouldn’t even be able to lead Spurs to a top-four finish. Only 8.2% have faith that he is the right man for the job.
