Sandro has revealed that Tim Sherwood will not be the Tottenham Hotspur manager next season.

The 45-year-old was handed an 18-month contract when Spurs chairman Daniel Levy showed the door to their former boss Andre Villas-Boas last December. Sherwood was expected to guide the north London side into the top four this season as they were eyeing the Champions League next season.

The White Hart Lane club are sixth in the table with 66 points from 37 games, trailing fourth place Arsenal by 10 points with one game remaining in this season. The failure to qualify for Europe's elite club competition has cast doubts over Sherwood's future.

Ajax boss Frank de Boer has admitted that Spurs have approached him to replace Sherwood for the next campaign and Sandro confirmed the English manager will be sacked at the end of the season.

"Sherwood will leave at the end of the season. Then it's a new coach – a new everything! I am happy at the moment," the Metro quoted Sandro as saying.

Sandro's future was uncertain as he was reportedly falling out with Sherwood. However, the Brazilian says the Englishman's potential departure has made him continue with his current employers.

"It would be very difficult to leave from here. Daniel Levy negotiates every transfer, this was the case for Gareth Bale, it's not easy," Spurs midfielder concluded.

Sherwood believes his successor at Spurs will have a tough act to follow as he is set to be relieved of his duties once the season ends on Sunday.

"What am I going to do? I'm not going to roll up and die, I'm just going to get on with my job, which is to try and prepare my team to win football matches and whatever will be will be," Sherwood explained.

"I've just got to carry on with my business, show my personal pride and professionalism and make sure that those lads are prepared to win for the team and for the fans and for this great club."

"I don't think he is too interested in looking at what I am doing already because if he did then he would see he has got a hard act to follow," Spurs manager concluded.
