No, do not take it high! Tim Sherwood is not yet called upon to replace Villas-Boas, but rather to just take on the interim role of the Portuguese sacked after concatenating hollow defeats at the Spurs.
As it does not make it possible for the men of departed Villas-Boas to stand for their Capital One Cup clash against West Ham on Wednesday without a breeder, the leaders of the London club think former Spurs midfielder currently part of the White Hart Lane coaching staff is the right person to direct players.
Only good results can maintain Sherwood as Spurs boss since Fabio Capello, Glenn Hoddle and Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino have emerged as early contenders for the position in the longer term.
The English technician will enjoy the helping hands of Chris Ramsey and Les Ferdinand at the head of Spurs.
“The club can announce that Tim Sherwood, Chris Ramsey and Les Ferdinand will take charge of the first team whilst the club progresses discussions. Steffen Freund and Tony Parks continue as part of the coaching staff,” a Tottenham statement read.
