The Tottenham Hotspur Supporter’s Trust have demanded chairman Daniel Levy explain his future plans for the club following the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas, according to Sky Sports.
Villas-Boas became the seventh Tottenham manager to be sacked during the Levy era, following Sunday’s 5-0 defeat to Liverpool at White Hart Lane.
Tim Sherwood has been installed as interim boss, and will take control of the team for their trip to Southampton on Sunday, but the clubs concerned supporters want Levy to explain the thinking behind the sacking of Villas-Boas.
A statement read: “Following the departure of Andre Villas-Boas on Monday morning and defeat in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday evening, the board of Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust believe it is paramount that the chairman of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, Daniel Levy, issues a statement addressing the supporters to explain the rationale behind the manager’s dismissal and clearly stating his plans moving forward.
“We believe that now, more than at any time during ENIC’s ownership of THFC, the level of frustration and anger being shown by fans renders this request fully warranted. As ever, it is made in the best interests of our club.”
Levy is understood to be considering the long term replacement for Villas-Boas, with Ajax coach Frank de Boer the latest to claim he has been contacted. Fellow Dutchmen Guus Hiddink and Ronald Koeman have also been linked, whilst FC Basel coach Murat Yakin also claimed he had been contacted.
Sherwood has also refused to rule himself out of the running for the full time job.
“I need to chat to the chairman and see what they’re thinking but the immediate future is up in the air,” he said.
