New manager recently admitted he may still be sacked this summer even if he guides the north Londoners into the Champions League.
Tottenham Hotspur defender Younes Kaboul believes that current head coach Tim Sherwood deserves the opportunity to manage the north London club beyond the summer, according to reports in the London Evening Standard.

Sherwood was handed the role by Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy on an 18-month contract following the sacking of previous boss Andre Villas-Boas before Christmas.
However, rumours have been rife of late suggesting that Levy will replace the Englishman with experienced Netherlands international team manager Louis van Gaal next season.
But Kaboul says that Sherwood should be trusted to continue on in the role come what may: “I hope so, for him. He deserves it. He knows the club very well, he’s been here for a long time and he knows exactly what he’s doing.
“He learned a lot in the past and the best fact is that he played football at a high level. He won the title with Blackburn in 1995, so he has plenty of experience. His playing career is important, because he knows what it’s like for us.
“We don’t waste time on other stuff, because he went through everything and he understands. He knows the game perfectly. I remember that when Harry Redknapp was manager (from 2008-2012), Tim and [coaches] Les Ferdinand and Chris Ramsey would come to nearly every game.
“Wherever we were playing, it didn’t matter; they would be there. They would talk to us about how to deal better with certain situations on the pitch and even then, I could see Tim becoming a manager. He just had to be patient and wait for his chance.”
