ESPN FC: Spurs search for new manager
The Tottenham Hotspur Supporters' Trust has called on chairman Daniel Levy to explain the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas and outline "his plans moving forward."
Tottenham parted company with Villas-Boas on Monday after Sunday's 5-0 Premier League defeat at home to Liverpool, and Tim Sherwood has since been put in temporary charge.
The likes of Ajax's Frank de Boer and former Spurs boss Glenn Hoddle have been linked with the vacant role, although it is unclear when an appointment will be made.
The Times reports the club's main fan group voicing frustration at the lack of communication from Levy and Spurs' parent company Enic.
“Following the departure of Andre Villas-Boas on Monday morning and defeat in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday evening, the Board of THST believe it is paramount that the chairman, Levy, explain[s] the rationale behind the manager’s dismissal and his plans moving forward,” the Trust said in a statement.
“We believe that now, more than at any time during Enic’s ownership, the level of frustration and anger being shown by fans renders this request fully warranted. It is made in the best interests of our club.”
The Times also said Villas-Boas had been approached by AC Milan, whose current coach, Massimiliano Allegri, is under pressure following a disappointing 2013-14 season so far.
