Mark Lawrenson says that he is "convinced" that Tim Sherwood will be sacked as Tottenham Hotspur boss at the end of the season.

Former Liverpool defender Mark Lawrenson is "convinced" that Tottenham Hotspur will sack Tim Sherwood at the end of the season.

The Spurs boss signed a short-term deal back in December to stay on until the end of the campaign, but Lawrenson does not think that owner Joe Lewis will retain the services of the current coach.

He told The Mirror: "[It was] a good win over Southampton [on Sunday] for Tim Sherwood but I'm convinced he will be gone in the summer. Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will be painted as the bad guy, just as he was when Harry Redknapp got the sack. But the decision won't be his.

"It will be that of owner Joe Lewis whether Sherwood gets Tottenham into the top four – against the odds – or not.

"He has the money to pay for a top-line manager and with the likes of Rafael Benitez (who I think would be a good choice) and Louis van Gaal in the frame I can see movement at White Hart Lane."

Spurs are currently fifth in the Premier League.
