The Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust are calling for chairman Daniel Levy to answer questions about why he sacked manager Andre Villas-Boas and what his plans for the club are.

The Supporters’ Trust are unhappy with Levy after Sunday’s 5-0 demolition by Liverpool lost Villas-Boas his job at Spurs. This was compounded after the North London club were knocked out of the League Cup by local rivals West Ham on Wednesday night.

A statement from the board of Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust read: “Following the departure of Andre Villas-Boas on Monday morning and defeat in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday evening, the board of Tottenham Hotspur Supporters' Trust believe it is paramount that the chairman of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, Daniel Levy, issues a statement addressing the supporters to explain the rationale behind the manager's dismissal and clearly stating his plans moving forward.”

"We believe that now, more than at any time during ENIC's ownership of THFC, the level of frustration and anger being shown by fans renders this request fully warranted.”

Spurs end their miserable week on Sunday against Southampton and Levy confirmed caretaker manager Tim Sherwood would be take charge for the game.

Levy is on the hunt for a new Tottenham boss but the Supporters’ Trust have demanded answers from their chairman.

The unrest at the club has sparked fears from the fans that Tottenham’s season being derailed.

Spurs face a possible three match losing streak when they travel to a strong Southampton side managed by Spurs target Mauricio Pochettino.

However, the Southampton boss has claimed nobody from Tottenham had been in touch and he is happy at St Mary’s.

Levy had also been interested in luring Ajax manager Frank de Boer to White Hart Lane but the Dutchman is reported to be committed to his club.

Other names which have been touted for the Spurs job are ex-manager Glenn Hoodle, Russian boss Fabio Capello and their temporary manager Sherwood.
