After much speculation, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy finally exercised the contractual clause to dispense with Tim Sherwood’s services as manager. The news that nearly everybody had expected for some time eventually broke earlier today, with Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino identified by many outlets as the most likely successor.

A divisive figure in the dugout, Sherwood’s sacking received a mixed response from Spurs’ fans on Twitter.






Once the news broke, several users identified their reasons behind the sacking.



Other football fans decided to make light of Sherwood’s departure.






Just like the man himself, Sherwood’s sacking has divided Spurs’ supporters. If the rumours are to be believed however, the former Tottenham manager won’t be out of work for long.

    Sherwood was only ever going to be appointed till the end of the season – why is there so much surprise?

    The guy was learning on the job and did ok but unfortunately lacked class in his touch line and media behaviour that isn’t becoming of a traditional club such as a Tottenham.

    For the record Redknapp wasn’t sacked for on field results, he was sacked as he courted the Chelsea and England jobs whilst still Spurs manager after the club stood by him through hs court case. Unfortunately he had to go as a result.

      I heard that Redknapp was after Chelsea job as well while at Spurs, disgraceful really.

      Lets get Hoddle back in with a backroom staff of Steve Clarke, Chris Hughton and Teddy Sheringham. Hoddle is so knowledgeable and he loves the club and the other 3 can coach and protect Hods fom his Achilles heel – man management.

      Hoddle with better players could really work.
