LONDON (AP) -- Tottenham has appointed inexperienced Tim Sherwood as coach until the end of next season in a surprise move by the club a week after Andre Villas-Boas was fired.
The Englishman had not managed a team until his switch from his technical job at Tottenham to interim manager last Monday.
After losing a League Cup match to West Ham on Wednesday, Sherwood's first Premier League match ended with Tottenham's 3-2 at Southampton on Sunday.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy says the team was ''extremely reluctant'' to make a midseason change but felt it had to do so ''in the club's best interests.''
