Timothy Alan Sherwood (born 6 February 1969) is an English professional football manager and former midfielder.
Tottenham manager George Graham paid a reported fee of £3 million to bring him to Tottenham Hotspur in the first week of February 1999, from Blackburn Rovers. Sherwood had captained Blackburn to the Premier League title in 1995. He made his debut for Spurs as an 87th-minute substitute for Mauricio Taricco in the 0–0 draw with Coventry on 6 February. He was cup-tied for their victory in the 1999 Football League Cup Final. Sherwood won a runners-up medal with Spurs in the 2002 League Cup Final, when they were beaten by his former club Blackburn.
In October 2008, Sherwood joined Tottenham Hotspur as assistant first team coach, under new manager Harry Redknapp. Sherwood became Technical Director in 2012 and in that role led Spurs' Under-21 side in the inaugural Under-21 Premier League season, guiding the side to finish top in both group and elite stages. Sherwood's side eventually lost the league final 3–2 to Manchester United.
On 16 December 2013, Tottenham announced that Sherwood would "assume first team coaching duties" following the departure of Andre Villas-Boas as the manager. He lost his first game in charge, 2–1 at home to West Ham in the fifth round of the Capital One Cup, but four days later managed a 3–2 Premier League win over Southampton. On 23 December, Spurs named Sherwood as their new head coach, handing him an 18-month contract until the end of the 2014–15 season. His last match as Spurs manager was a 3–0 win over Aston Villa on 11 May 2014. With this win Sherwood achieved a sixth-place finish in the league with Spurs with a total of 69 league points. Sherwood was sacked by chairman Daniel Levy on 13 May 2014.
