Former Man United & Tottenham scoring machine fired after 9 months

Posted by

Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United scoring machine Teddy Sheringham has been fired from his first job as manager of Stevenage after nine months on the job.

The club announced on Monday that they were parting ways with the English football legend after taking just three points from the last 24 available and now sit just eight points above the League Two relegation zone. His managerial record is 7W, 10D, 16L with a win rate of just 21.2% in 33 games for Stevenage

“Teddy has had the worst luck I’ve seen in the 16 years I’ve owned the football club,” Stevenage chairman Phil Wallace told BBC Sport.

“Normally we’d have one or two major ops on key players in a season but we’ve had more this season than the last three combined.”

Sheringham was the first-ever winner of the Premier League Golden Boot when the league formed in the 1992-93 season. He scored 21 goals for Tottenham Hotspur that season but never won a title with the club.

In 1997, Sheringham joined Manchester United as a replacement for the retiring Eric Cantona but didn’t record a double-digit goal season for the club in his final year at Old Trafford.
