Aston Villa have Sherwood put down
Aston Villa Football Club have confirmed that beloved manager Tim Sherwood was put down shortly after the club’s 2-1 defeat to Swansea.
There had been worries over Sherwood’s future and the usually lively manager had lost his spark and glossy sheen, leading many to fear the worst.
“It is with deep regret that Aston Villa bids farewell to Sherwood,” a club statement handed to FFT reads. “Sherwood was a loyal servant and a faithful companion. You could say he was a man’s best friend.
Aston Villa posted a moving tribute on their website with photos of Sherwood in happier times: celebrating Premier League survival with the players, amusing journalists with his loveable antics and rolling onto his back so that Alan Hutton could tickle his stomach. It has been suggested that Villa will find a replacement for Sherwood, but the club have insisted that it’s far too soon to even start thinking about that.
