The Tottenham Hotspur Supporters' Trust (THST) has asked club chairman Daniel Levy to explain why he fired Andre Villas-Boas and to also outline "his plans moving forward.” AVB was fired on Monday following Spurs’ 5-0 Premier League defeat at home to Liverpool, while former technical director Tim Sherwood was placed in temporary charge.

The likes of Swansea City’s Michael Laudrup, Ajax’s Frank de Boer and former boss Glenn Hoddle have been linked with the vacant job, although it is unclear when an appointment will be made. According to the The Times, the club’s main fan group is frustrated with the lack of communication from Levy and Spurs parent company Enic.

“Following the departure of Andre Villas-Boas on Monday morning and defeat in the Capital One Cup (to West Ham United) on Wednesday evening, the Board of THST believe it is paramount that the chairman, Levy, explain[s] the rationale behind the manager’s dismissal and his plans moving forward,” the Trust said in a statement. “We believe that now, more than at any time during Enic’s ownership, the level of frustration and anger being shown by fans renders this request fully warranted. It is made in the best interests of our club.”

Separately, The Times also reported that AC Milan has approached AVB about replacing current coach Massimiliano Allegri, who is under pressure following a disappointing 2013-14 Serie A season so far. Read the original story...
