Tottenham Appoint Sherwood As Head Coach

Tottenham Hotspur have appointed Tim Sherwood as their head coach until the end of the 2014/15 season.

The 44-year-old was in the care-taker role after the club parted ways with former manager Andre Villas-Boas previous Monday.

Sherwood, a former Spurs and Blackburn midfielder, has seen his new team losing to West Ham in the English League Cup, but won a crucial Premier League game away at Southampton on Sunday.

Afterwards he openly expressed his desire to lead Tottenham on a full-time basis and finally got the nod after a few candidates such as Frank De Boer and Louis Van Gaal indicated they won’t be available for the vacant role at this point in time.

The club’s Chairman, Daniel Levy, told Tottenham’s website: “We were extremely reluctant to make a change in mid-season, but felt we had to do so in the club’s best interests.”

"We have a great squad and we owe them a Head Coach who will bring out the best in them and allow them to flourish and enjoy a strong, exciting finish to the season.

"We are in the fortunate position of having within our club a talented coach in Tim Sherwood.

"We believe Tim has both the knowledge and the drive to take the squad forward."

Chris Ramsey, Les Ferdinand and Steffen Freund complete the new first-team coaching set up at White Hart Lane.

Despite their difficult start into the season, Tottenham are sixth on the log – only six points apart from Christmas leaders Liverpool and four from their targeted Champions League spot. Spurs now welcome West Brom and Stoke at home before they travel to Old Trafford on January 1.

Can Tim Sherwood and his coaching team turn the tide at White Hart Lane or are they only an interim solution until a big name is freed up after this campaign?
