Tim Sherwood claims that he would not have taken charge of Tottenham Hotspur if he knew that he would be sacked after five months.

Tim Sherwood has claimed that he would not have taken the Tottenham Hotspur job if he knew that he would be sacked after five months.

The 45-year-old was dismissed by the club on Tuesday with over a year left on his contract at White Hart Lane.

Sherwood guided Spurs to a sixth-placed finish in the Premier League table during his brief spell in charge of the team.

"I love the development phase of football and if I knew it was a five-month job stepping up I wouldn't have done it," he told Sky Sports News.

"As a manager your head's going to be on the block and it might be a short tenure, and in the end it proved that. I didn't anticipate it would be as short as it actually was. I thought that if I had 18 months there I would definitely take the club forward."

Current Ajax coach Frank de Boer is among the favourties to replace Sherwood at Tottenham.
