Sherwood: The Silence is Deafening at Spurs

Following his team’s 4-0 drubbing at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, Coach Tim Sherwood admitted that the "silence is deafening" regarding his long-term future as head coach of Tottenham Hotspur. There are already rumors that Sherwood will be replaced or even demoted to the position of assistant with veteran Dutch coach Louis van Gaal linked to the post.

"The silence is deafening, isn't it?" said Sherwood after Saturday's 4-0 defeat at Chelsea. "Look, the decision is up to [Spurs chairman] Daniel [Levy]. I didn't know if he was here or not. Maybe he was traveling? It's up to the club to make the decision. One thing I can guarantee people is that no one cares more than me. I want the team to do very well and it hurts me when they don't. I'm afraid I need people in that dressing room to be hurting like I am." Sherwood placed the blame on his players after a number of individual mistakes led to Chelsea’s four-goal rout in the second half.

The former Spurs midfielder, who was an assistant to former coach Andre Villas-Boas, also claimed that he could never go back to being an assistant. "I never want to be a No. 2. I'd be no good, I'm too opinionated. I wouldn't want to do the job,” he said, before taking a jibe at his former boss. “But I do think there is a place for a technical director. I'm someone who sees the club from the bottom to the top on the training field. A lot of clubs need people like that otherwise you get no continuity and end up buying seven or 10 players every window and your turnover of players is too great."

The North London club is four points adrift of fourth-place Manchester City, having played three fewer games than the recently crowned League Cup champion. Read the original story...
