Despite taking over midway through the season from Andre Villas-Boas, Sherwood steered the club to sixth place and the best winning percentage of any Tottenham manager in the Premier League, chairman Daniel Levy exercised the option to end Sherwood’s 18-month contract early.

Speaking as a pundit for ITV as part of the FA Cup Final coverage, Sherwood insisted the decision did not come out of the blue.

“I wasn’t dramatically surprised,” he admitted.

“I’m not bitter. The Spurs hierarchy have made their decision and I have to respect their decision.”

The former Spurs player added that while he was disappointed not to continue in the role, he has no regrets over his short stint in charge at White Hart Lane.

“I wouldn’t do anything differently,” he added.

“I prepared a team to win matches and we won more than we lost.”

Sherwood said that he is looking to get back into management as soon as possible after learning valuable lessons at Spurs.
