After a highly successful season 2013/14 for the North London side, Tottenham Hotspur. Finding a Champions League spot (4th) and winning the Europa Cup against Schalke in the final. The man in charge, Andre Villa-boas has chosen to part ways with the Lily-whites. In an exclusive AVB was vocal about his love of vintage cars and motorcycles a passion and hobby he can’t maintain while managing in football. Especially with his very hands on approach. Andre also mentioned the difficulty he has finding time for his family whilst managing a problem many in the same shoes can agree on.
Many fans are said to be saddened by the loss as they thought he was the right man to take Spurs into the Champions League and many fans have made it clear they don’t see Tottenham posing as big of a threat without him. With too little time for a new manager to impose a new system and make it perfect. Especially after Andre’s very clinical system made such a difference. It would be an extremely difficult task to scrap a perfect system and start another.
The club still has to move on. It seems with Tottenham whenever they find the right gears for the engine a spanner is thrown in them. Unfortunate for many fans as a title challenge has been on their lips for years and even more so for the season ahead. Before all the changing.
So who is in contention to take over the hot seat at White Hart Lane? Pundits have highlighted Southampton’s ex manager Mauricio Pochettino, the US of A’s Jurgen Klinsmann and Tottenham’s U21 manager Tim Sherwood. All look likely to be in battle to take the seat.
