Tim Sherwood may have overseen his last game as Tottenham’s Head Coach but if he is sacked before the start of the next campaign, the former midfielder will depart with his reputation intact. At least, that’s his view as told to reporters after yesterday’s 3-0 win over Aston Villa.
“I’ve got a 59 per cent win ratio in the Premier League and I think if I had started the season in charge we’d be in the Champions League.”
“We’d scored 15 when I took the job and we’ve scored 40 goals since then. It will be interesting to see how I’ve been judged and what I’ve been judged on.
Sherwood also commented on the match in question and was delighted with the fast start that killed the game off before half time.
“We’ve been criticised over the season for starting slowly but I didn’t think that was the case today, we could have been three up by the time we scored the first and once Paulinho scored, it was comfortable for us,” Tim said on the club’s official website.
“I was delighted with the players’ application and it was game-over by half-time.”
So if Sherwood leaves he will, as far as he is concerned, do so with his head held high. He believes that Champions League football would have been captured had he started the season but as it is, yesterday’s victory confirms a slot in the Europa League once again.
