Gary Lineker has praised sacked Tottenham Hotspur boss Tim Sherwood with the former Spurs striker feeling he did a good job. Sherwood had been repeatedly forced to deal with intense speculation he was just keeping the hotseat warm for someone else, with the 45-year-old even going so far to say players and agents had told him he was definitely getting the boot. And what was widely expected finally happened today when chairman Daniel Levy confirmed the news after enacting a clause in Sherwood’s 18-month contract. And Lineker thinks his former club did not treat Sherwood with respect and felt the former academy coach did a good job, while being one of a kind. Tim Sherwood has been sacked by Spurs. He’s opinionated, bombastic and refreshingly different. Hope to see him in charge of a PL club soon, he said on Twitter. Sherwood took over in December from Andre Villas-Boas and guided the club to sixth place in the Premier League with 69 points – three short of last season’s total and a figure that would often secure Champions League football. But the failure to reach European football’s top tournament sealed Sherwood’s fate with Levy now set to appoint a more experienced coach. Frank de Boer and Mauricio Pochettino are among the favourites with the former claiming Spurs had contacted his club Ajax about a possible move, with the Dutchman going on to reveal he would relish the chance to take charge of the Premier League outfit.
