According to The Sun, Queens Park Rangers are considering making a move for former Tottenham Hotspur boss Tim Sherwood in light of the team’s poor run of form.

Sherwood spent a little over half a season as Spurs boss as he took over until the end of the 2013-14 season following Andre Villas-Boas’ sacking in December of 2013.

The former Tottenham midfielder had a mixed record during his time at the helm in North London and was eventually replaced by Mauricio Pochettino at the end of the season.

After leaving Spurs, Sherwood had a short spell at Aston Villa, where he failed to live up to expectations.

The 51-year-old has been out of football since spending half a season at the director of football at Swindon, a spell which came to an end after the club’s relegation to League Two in 2017.

The Sun claim that QPR supremo, Les Ferdinand is eyeing Sherwood as a possible replacement for Mark Warburton if the club’s results do not improve soon.

Rangers are currently sitting just above the relegation zone in the Championship table.

Spurs Web Opinion

Given that Ferdinand and Sherwood both used to be part of Redknapp’s coaching staff at Spurs, it is not surprising that that the QPR director of football is considering the former Spurs boss as an option. However, despite giving the likes of Harry Kane and Jack Grealish their debuts, Sherwood has proven his incomitance time and again, and I believe it would be a disastrous move for QPR to appoint him.
