Andre Villas-Boas sacked by Tottenham - Glenn Hoddle angling for another shot ...

Tottenham have sacked manager Andre Villas-Boas in the wake of Sunday's 5-0 Premier League thrashing by Liverpool.

The loss was Tottenham's worst at White Hart Lane in 16 years and left Spurs seventh in the table - eight points behind leaders Arsenal.

Former Chelsea boss Villas-Boas, 36, took over at Tottenham in July 2012. Villas-Boas was dismissed by Chelsea in March 2012 after just over eight months in charge at Stamford Bridge, and he was hoping to rebuild his reputation at Tottenham.

Technical co-ordinator Tim Sherwood will take charge of the Capital One Cup tie against West Ham on Wednesday.

Former Spurs manager Glenn Hoddle is keen to become Tottenham manager for a second time in a short-term or long-term capacity. Hoddle managed Spurs between 2001 and 2003 and is among those tipped to replace Andre Villas-Boas, who was sacked on Monday.

2013-14 Premier League managerial changes so far :
Paolo Di Canio (sacked by Sunderland)
Ian Holloway (left Crystal Palace)
Martin Jol (sacked by Fulham)
Steve Clarke (sacked by West Brom)
Andre Villas-Boas (sacked by Tottenham)
