But it’s been a season of high expectation that has turned into one of huge disappointment with very little improvement on last season despite a £108 million outlay on incomings during a busy summer.
There is a small chance that Sherwood could inspire his side to a Champions League spot but it seems unlikely and that will see him being replaced in the summer.
Daniel Levy is reportedly already seeking new players to freshen up the Spurs squad with today’s copy of The Mirror suggesting that Swiss Under-21 international Loris Benito is on their radar.
The 20-year-old FC Zurich man has been recommended to the White Hart Lane club by one of their former players, Ramon Vega.
Benito, who can either play as a left back or in midfield, will be available for an estimated £3 million with Juventus also considering a summer move.
Before joining Zurich in 2012, he came through the ranks at FC Aarau and featured for their first team for three years.
We know that Spurs need a new left back to start new season but does an untried Swiss Under-21 star represent a suitable option? Let us know your thoughts below.
