As the recent news unveils, the sacking of André Villas-Boas is of no surprise to any loyal Football fan. 

The string of poor results following the 6-0 thrashing at the Etihad lead for Daniel Levy to step in and make a final decision to axe the Portuguese  manager.

Even though AVB had the best win percentage (53.7%) of any Tottenham manager in the last 22 years, Franco Baldini and Daniel Levy had seen enough after they saw their beloved Tottenham getting trounced 5-0 at home to a very inform Liverpool side. 

So, with the departure of AVB who's likely to step in and take Tottenham to new heights?

Fabio Capello

Fabio Capello, the current manager of international side, Russia, has been out of club management for 6 years - after last being employed at the Bernabeu for Real Madrid. Although, clearly a man who is qualified for the job and used to dealing with the pressure of demanding roles, quotes of 4/1 seem a little short on a 67-year-old manager who has not held a job in club management since 2007 - especially with preparations for next summer's World Cup already well under way.

However, he would provide a certain dynamic attitude towards the set up and game play of Tottenham which they are desperately screaming out for. 

Michael Laudrup

The Swansea boss has had success in his relatively short time in the Premier League, taking the Swans into the Europa League via a Capital One Cup win over Bradford City at Wembley last Februrary.

He shows great precision in the transfer market with the fantastic signings of Wilfried Bony and Michu for great value prices. What puts Laudrup up as one of the favourites is that he has proven his worth with Swansea and can deliver when asked too, with a good squad who's not to say Laudrup can't go far in the Europa League.

Especially with the backing of Levy and the boardroom, I have no doubt that Laudrup would in anyway under-perform as the Tottenham manager. 

Tim Sherwood

Tim Sherwood, who has been placed in temporary charge, could be seen as a natural successor from within the club but his lack of top-level experience may see him overlooked in the long term.

He would be looked as a short-term plan who would finish off the 2013/2014 campaign with Tottenham whilst they look for a long-term solution. He could well take his opportunity like Di Matteo and reach new glory.

Guus Hiddink

Guus Hiddink, much like Fabio Capello, has both experience of club management and international football but, unlike the former England boss, is currently available after leaving Anzhi Mahachkala following a turbulent spell with the Russian club.

However, his odds at 9/1 seem a tad unrealistic as just days ago he mentioned his desire to return to the Dutch national team ahead of the 2014 World Cup in Rio next year.

Frank De Boer

De Boer does have a win rate of over 60 per cent in all competitions and with failing to reach the last 32 in the Champions League with Ajax, Frank may be open to a move to North London. 

He has bags of European knowledge and expertise with him and has great instincts when it comes to the transfer market. With Frank, you are taking a slight gamble with no actual Premier League experience but, is he worth the gamble?

Who should become Tottenham manager:

Fabio Capello. He brings a lot on the table for Tottenham that I don't think they'll decline, he is a long term replacement for the club and has the drive and desire to take Spurs into a top 6 finishing team into the top 4. It'd be a new challenge for Fabio that I think he'd relish.
