As Tim Sherwood said after the Chelsea game, the silence was deafening but if the coach ever reads the news feeds, he’d have seen many websites proclaiming the end of his brief reign. When our former midfielder was given a short term contract, most of us fully expected him to be replaced after the World Cup and those calls have intensified after a poor run of results.
“The silence is deafening, isn’t it? It’s up to Daniel,” Tim told reporters when asked about the possibility of a new man coming in the summer.
“It’s up to the club to make that decision. One thing I guarantee people is that there is no one who cares more than me. I want the team to do very well and it hurts me when they don’t. I need people to be hurting like I’m hurting.”
Sherwood went on to add that he wouldn’t be happy to work under an incoming manager such as the Netherlands’ Louis van Gaal.
“I never want to be a number two,” he added. “I feel like I can do the number one job. I don’t think I’d be good at number two. I’m too opinionated. I wouldn’t want to do the number two job.”
However, Sherwood did add that he would be comfortable in taking the Director of Football’s job.
There are no quotes available from Daniel Levy this morning although the press are united in claiming that the Chairman has given the coach his backing. Does that change the position or are you fully expecting a new man to walk in after the World Cup in Brazil?
