Currently the favourite according to thesackrace.com, due to the fact he’s got the inside track by being given the Tottenham post on a caretaker basis, is club favourite Tim Sherwood.
The 44 year-old spent four years of his playing career at White Hart Lane, racking up 93 Premier League appearances, in which time he also had a brief stint in the England team.
The retired midfielder joined the Spurs coaching staff under Harry Redknapp in 2008 and has been involved behind the scenes ever since, so he’s already well acquainted with the club itself and the players, which could give him a unique advantage considering the one thing the Lilywhites desperately need right now is some sense of stability.
The former Warford, Norwich and Blackburn man will get a chance to prove himself tonight when Tottenham take on West Ham in the Capital One Cup, and will most likely get another shot at the weekend against Southampton.
But he’ll have to do a lot to convince Daniel Levy he’s deserving of the manager role on a permanent basis; Sherwood has no managerial experience to date and the Spurs chief will be reluctant to trust a novice with £110million’s worth of highly-rated talent.
