Tottenham is an age old club with strong traditions but is Daniel Levy ruining this by the time he is giving his managers?
Tim Sherwood took over from Andre Villas-Boas five months ago with no experience and managed to keep Spurs in the Europa League until the round 16 where they were unlucky to go out. He also managed a sixth place finish, yet he still gets the sack? How is this right? Levy has since claimed that he only intended to keep Sherwood until the end of the season, yet gave him an 18 month contract.
Sherwood inherited a side who were in the process of rebuilding from losing Gareth Bale. He was given a large squad full of players who struggled under AVB, were new to the club or were quite young and lacked experience in the Premier League. This was always going to be a difficult job to take on for a new young manager, yet Levy never wanted him.
The Spurs chairman has now seen off 10 managers, with each sacking making him appear increasingly like a Bond villain. How can a manager feel at ease or know that he has the chance to build a team for the future when has an axe hanging over him from day one? It is understandable that a chairman only wants the best for his football club, but patience and reality iare what Levy seems to lack.
Tottenham always seem to have potential but lack that experience in how to win league compared to Chelsea, City, United and Arsenal. Levy obviously wants to win the league but he hired Sherwood and AVB who are still learning the game yet he demands trophies. Hopefully Mauricio Pochettino will prove to be a success and bring some joy to the miserable hit man Levy.
Sherwood amidst all this has has come out with strong credentials. His win percentage was 59.1 percent , 2.82 goals per game were scored and he seemed relaxed in his role. But what next for him? He might not want to drop down to the Championship considering he has had a taste for the Premier League. There are going to be several clubs looking at Sherwood, and it surely will not be long until he has a chance to prove Levy was hasty pulling the trigger once again.
