It seems inevitable that Tottenham Hotspur manager Tim Sherwood will be looking for a new job after Spurs' middling campaign comes to a close. 

But if he's still in charge next season at White Hart Lane, it may be members of Tottenham's social staff who may be updating their CVs. 

First, they had to apologise for mocking Liverpool, as reported by Sky Sports, now they took a subtle jab at likely outbound gaffer Sherwood. 

In a simple tweet linking to a preview, Eurosport spotted that the customisable link had "saqme" at the end of it. It's not difficult to figure out what they're getting at there.

Undeterred, however, Spurs left the tweet in question up.

Of course, there was fun to be had with it.
