Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood has insisted that the club would have finished in the top four if he had been charge at the start of the season.
Sherwood replaced Andre Villas-Boas mid-season and is expected to be also shown the door at White Hart Lane by chairman Daniel Levy over the course of the summer.
The 3-0 win against Aston Villa gave Sherwood a 59% Premier League win percentage, the best of any Spurs manager during the Premier League era.
“Absolutely, I love doing this job, my life would be a lot easier if I wasn’t a manager but I want to do it. It’s my life, it’s what I want to be involved in and continuing doing it,” Sherwood told the post-match press pack.
“If I had started the season, we would have finished in the Champions League places. It will be interesting to see how I am judged when I meet the chairman. If I do leave, it can’t be on results. If I’d have known it would only be for five months, I wouldn’t have done it, to be honest.
“I can only judged for the season when I’ve taken over. A 59% win ratio is second to none. I’m happy with how I have done.”
