Spurs manager with highest win % in their EPL history is sacked

That’s right not even an impressive win percentage of 59% can guarantee you will keep yourself in the job nowadays. To the outside world it looked as though Tim Sherwood had done a decent job at Spurs since he took over from departed manager AVB on the 16th of December. But just 5 months later the man who led Tottenham in to next seasons Europa League - ahead of Manchester United - has been sacked.

That’s right not even an impressive win percentage of 59% can guarantee you will keep yourself in the job nowadays. To the outside world it looked as though Tim Sherwood had done a decent job at Spurs since he took over from departed manager AVB on the 16th of December. But just 5 months later the man who led Tottenham in to next seasons Europa League – ahead of Manchester United – has been sacked.

Sherwood who was on an 18 month contract had talks with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy on Tuesday afternoon and the man in charge decided to axe him, going on to say:

“We agreed an 18-month contract with a break clause at the end of the season and we have now exercised that option,”

He goes on to say – “Since appointing Tim as assistant first team coach in 2008 and then as technical co-ordinator in 2010 and head of football development in 2012, we have been supportive of him during football management changes throughout that period.”

“On behalf of the club, I should like to state our thanks for all his efforts during his years with us. We wish him great success in his managerial career.”

Sherwood found himself in the media spotlight recently after inviting a fan to join him in the dugout during their 3-0 win over Villa last Saturday – also giving him the famous gilet to wear! In an interview after the game he joked that ‘The police were after the fan because he’d taken his gilet’ and that it was good ‘banter’.

It is likely that Sherwood will find himself with plenty of offers in the near future and the general public won’t miss out on his honest post match interviews for too long.
