Sherwood Reveals Club Objectives Couldn't Have Been Fulfilled
Tim Sherwood guided Tottenham to the 6th spot of the Premier League and even though he managed on earning a win percentage of 59.1% with the club, he was still sacked and fired from his position.
The English manager has revealed details concerning his former role in Tottenham as he stated that the objectives of the club could never be fulfilled after having sold Gareth Bale.
"At the beginning of the season the aim was to be in the top four and it always is for Tottenham. But when you actually analyze the season, taking out Gareth Bale with 21 goals, Jermain Defoe with 10 Premier League goals, Clint Dempsey with seven and replacing it with a very good goal scorer in Roberto Soldado who has never played in the competition before and six other players who'd never played in the competition before, realistically the expectation of finishing in the top four was far too great’’.
Sherwood continued on even saying that he regrets having picked up the coaching position at White Hart Lane
“It was in a difficult situation, the club. They decided to make a change in manager. The chairman asked me step up with Chris Ramsey and Les Ferdinand. We’ve had 30 years’ service at that football club combined so it’s a club that is close to our hearts and we always knew it was an opportunity to get in the firing line’’.
The managerial position at White Hart Lane still has not been filled and there are a number of names which has been bouncing around as they are being linked with taking up the hot seat. Southampton’s Mauricio Pochettino has made an impressive season while Frank de Boer just recently sealed another title with Ajax and both of them are genuine candidates of succeeding Sherwood at Tottenham.
