Tim Sherwood’s days as the Tottenham manager appeared to be numbered after midfielder Sandro claimed that the interim manager will be replaced at the end of the season. Sherwood was appointed as the replacement for Andre Villas-Boas after the Portuguese was sacked midway through the season. Even though initial results appeared extremely promising for Sherwood, things soon started turning sour after a couple of defeats. The club, who were expected to qualify for the Champions League next season, are now set to finish outside the top six.
Despite what will happen concerning the coaching position in Tottenham, there still are a number of players that have been linked with the White Hart Lane club.
Adam Lallana of Southampton is a priority of the chairman of Tottenham, Daniel Levy and an offer of the region of €20 million is expected to be done in the summer in order for Levy to lure Lallana away from Southampton.
Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood has expressed his confidence that his club can beat the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool, and Arsenal in the remainder of the season to finish in the top four. Tottenham spent more than £ 100 million in revamping the squad in the hope of finishing in the top four.
The Tottenham Hotspur manager, Andre Villas-Boas, has said that his relationship with Jose Mourinho is not as good as it used to be a few years back.
Villas-Boas who is just 35 years of age at the moment was Mourinho’s assistant for quite some time and worked under him at 3 different clubs. They decided to part ways 4 years back in 2009.
Villas-Boas will be up against his former boss on Saturday as his team Tottenham will take on Chelsea at White Hart lane.
Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas has stressed the importance of keeping the star players at the club despite missing out on the top four finish this season. Star players like Gareth Bale have been extremely influential for the club, but due to their impressive performances this season, they have been linked with clubs like Real Madrid and Barcelona.
The Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas has said that the top four position still remains within reach for the Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers, against whom he will be coming up in the midweek action.
Tottenham are unlikely to offer the same £ 24 million for the Portuguese midfielder Joao Moutinho in the January transfer window according to a close source at Tottenham. The club became extremely close to securing the services of the FC Porto midfielder after agreeing a £ 22 million fee with the Portuguese club.
However, the deal could not be completed in time after the London club failed to agree personal terms with the player. There have been rumours that the Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas will make Joao Moutinho his first priority when the transfer window reopens in January.
Manchester City's on loan striker Emmanuel Adebayor has said that he is extremely keen to stay in London with Tottenham next season.
Emmanuel Adebayor joined Tottenham on a loan deal till the end of the season. He has proven to be a massive hit with the club after getting them to the top four finish once again.
