Tottenham to Sack Tim Sherwood at the End of the Season

Tottenham Hotspur supporters got the news this morning they had been wishing for — Tim Sherwood will be relieved of his managerial duties at the end of the season, according to Sky sources.

The manager, who was handed an 18 month contract on December 23 after replacing Andre Villas-Boas, currently has a win percentage of 45.45% with Tottenham, but has managed the team during a spell of lifeless performances that have sent Spurs out of the race to battle for fourth spot in the Premier League.

Based on his body language and lack of desire or passion, it seemed he may have already been told that his services were no longer needed before the 4-0 away loss against Liverpool where he sat in the stands at Anfield.

If and when the news is confirmed that Sherwood will depart this summer, the move means that Tottenham have practically given up on the results for the remainder of the season. The players won’t listen to the manager or respect him as much as they normally would if they know he’s going to be leaving in a few weeks. But, importantly for Tottenham, the expected announcement of the departure of Sherwood will make sure that managerial candidates can start applying for the job, giving Spurs a head start on trying to find a suitable replacement.

Tottenham’s next match is today against Sunderland at 3pm ET (on NBCSN, for viewers in the United States).
