Sherwood gets Spurs job

11:30 am on 24 December 2013

Tim Sherwood has been appointed manager of Tottenham Hotspur with a contract to the end of the 2014-2015 English Premier League football season.

Sherwood had been named as interim coach after Andre Villas-Boas was sacked earlier in December following a 5-0 defeat to Liverpool.

The 44-year-old Sherwood had overseen a 3-2 over Southampton, after also overseeing Spurs' League Cup exit to London rivals West Ham.
