Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy stunned the Premier League by sacking Harry Redknapp last summer.

Many high-profile names were included in the search such as Pep Guardiola and even Jose Mourinho. Instead, Andre Villas-Boas was appointed and there were mixed emotions conveyed by the Tottenham fans due to his unimpressive reign at Chelsea.

Villas-Boas made his breakthrough and showed himself to the footballing world through his famous Europa League win with FC Porto in 2011.

Since his arrival at the club, Villas-Boas has had his ups and downs with the Lilywhites, including a convincing Europa League run and battling for second place - as opposed to now, where Spurs find themselves eliminated out of Europe and pushing for a top four spot.

Former Portsmouth manager Redknapp was sacked by Levy after just missing out on a Champions League place, despite finishing in fourth place. With no silverware having been gained by the Portuguese manager and the possibility of finishing outside of the top four, Levy may start searching for a possible replacement.

Shortly after picking up a crucial north London derby win against Arsenal, Spurs went on a losing streak including losses against Liverpool, Inter Milan, Fulham and Basel. Tottenham currently lie in fifth place, two points off rivals Arsenal.

With Spurs desperately seeking Champions League football, the Lilywhites may wave goodbye to Villas-Boas.

On the other hand, some may argue that 35-year-old Villas Boas, wasn’t given the full backing by Levy during the last summer transfer window. Villas-Boas clearly placed Porto midfielder Joao Moutinho as Tottenham’s top transfer target throughout the whole summer window; however, after looking like the deal was going to take place, Levy signed Clint Dempsey as a cheap alternative.

Some would even say that Villas-Boas was a very good manager over the course of the footballing season. Some of his managerial actions have not gone unnoticed by the PFA, as a result to him having received two Manager of the Month awards.

Should Villas-Boas be given another chance by the club? Or should Levy go on another search for a new manager?

All will be revealed in the not too distant future.
