LONDON, May 13 (Reuters) - Following is the Tottenham Hotspur club statement announcing the news that Tim Sherwood is no longer head coach of the English Premier League club.


The Club can announce that Tim Sherwood has left his coaching position at the Club.

"Since appointing Tim as Assistant First Team Coach in 2008 and then as Technical Co-ordinator in 2010 and Head of Football Development in 2012, we have been supportive of him during football management changes throughout that period. On behalf of the Club, I should like to state our thanks for all his efforts during his years with us. We wish him great success in his managerial career.

"Moving forward, now the season is over, we shall embark on the process of finding a new Head Coach. We have a talented squad and exciting young players coming through. We need to build on this season, develop our potential and inspire the kind of performances that we associate with our great Club."
