Sherwoodn’t Bet On Tim To Be At Spurs Next Season…

Tim Sherwood’s hopes of hanging onto his job at Spurs over the summer appear to be hanging by a thread according to William Hill. Sherwood is 1/16 to have been removed from his position by the end of the summer with Louis van Gaal 8/13 favourite to be the next person to don the manager’s jacket at White Hart Lane. Southampton boss, Mauro Pochettino is the 4/1 second favourite with Rafa Benitez rounding off the top three at 8/1.

“It seems almost certain that Sherwood is on his way before next summer and a top European manager looks likely to replace him,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

Across North London, Arsene Wenger is 6/4 to leave his job by the start of next season (1/2 to still be there).

Next permanent Tottenham manager: 8/13 Louis van Gaal; 4/1 Mauricio Pochettino; 8/1 Rafa Benitez; 10/1 Jurgen Klopp; 20/1 Carlo Ancelotti; 20/1 Frank de Boer; 25/1 Cesare Prandelli; 25/1 Fabio Capello; 25/1 Jurgen Klinsmann; 25/1 Luciano Spaletti; 25/1 Michael Laudrup; 33/1 Diego Simeone; 33/1 Glenn Hoddle; 33/1 Luis Enrique; 33/1 Roberto Mancini; 40/1 Guus Hiddink; 50/1 Chris Hughton; 50/1 Clarence Seedorf
