Immediately after hanging up his boots, Sherwood started a new career in the broadcasting world and joined Setanta Sports as a pundit for their Premier League coverage.
When the channel collapsed, he made a return to football joining his former Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp as assistant first team coach at Tottenham Hotspur.
Promoted to technical director in 2012, Sherwood led the Spurs under-21’s side to top spot in the group and elite stages of the inaugural Professional Development League.
After Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas was sacked in early December 2013, Sherwood temporarily took over first team affairs before a permanent appointment at the end of the month.
Despite finishing sixth in the league and having the best ever Premier League record by a Spurs manager he was dismissed at the end of the 2013/14 season.
After turning down the vacant manager’s job at West Bromwich Albion he was appointed manager of Aston Villa in February 2015 on a three-year contract with the sole aim of keeping them from relegation.
Sherwood not only successfully avoided relegation with a game to spare, he also managed to get his Villa side to the FA Cup Final where they lost to Arsenal.
Unfortunately the new 2015-16 season was a disaster for Sherwood and he was sacked after his Aston Villa side won only one of their first ten games.
He made a return to football in November 2016 when he was appointed as director of football at League One side Swindon Town on a part-time basis. but left the following June following the side’s relegation and a change of club structure.
Returning to broadcasting he has worked as a pundit for Al-Jazeera and Amazon Prime Video and is a regular contributor on both BT Sport and Sky Sports.
