Tim Sherwood will take charge of Tottenham Hotspur’s trip to Southampton this weekend, confirmed the Independent.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy spoke to Sherwood this morning to confirm he would be in charge of Sunday afternoon's Premier League.
The caretaker manager took-first team training today after their 2-1 League Cup defeat to West Ham.
The North London club are still awaiting news on Andros Townsend’s injury which he picked up against West Ham last night, with fears mounting that the England star will be out for at least a month with a bad hamstring tear.
Sherwood will manage his first Premier League match on Sunday against Southampton whilst Spurs look for a permanent replacement for Andre Villas-Boas, who left the club on Monday.
The 44-year-old is currently in the running for the job on a permanent basis, along with bookies favourites Fabio Capello and Frank De Boer.
Tottenham will hope to return to winning ways at Southampton after two straight defeats at home, which ultimately sealed the fate of Villas-Boas.
Last season Spurs recorded the double over the Saints thanks to two Gareth Bale goals, one in each match, against his childhood club.
Record-signing Erik Lamela is expected to be available after a minor injury saw him miss the Hammers match, but Bale's void continues to loom large even if the winger returns.
