Sherwood clear favourite for Spurs job
After picking up his first win as Tottenham manager on Sunday, Tim Sherwood is now the clear favourite with the bookmakers to be handed the job on a permanent basis.
The former Spurs midfielder received mostly positive reviews for the more attacking brand of football on display and the reintroduction of Emmanuel Adebayor who netted twice on route to a 3-2 victory away at Southampton.
Sherwood is now a best price of just 11/8 with Bet365 to be the next permanent manager at White Hart Lane and that could prove great value as he has even touched odds-on in some places.
His main rival for the role appears to still be Glenn Hoddle who has made it clear he is interested in the job and is still available at a best price of 13/2 with 888sport. The bookies still see the former England boss as a viable option but in truth it would be a surprise move for many in the football world.
A candidate that has been on the move in the betting is Louis van Gaal who is as low as 4/1 in some places but still available at 10/1 with Ladbrokes. The legendary Dutch coach has never worked in England but has enjoyed an incredible career around Europe and would be seen as a huge appointment.
