Spurs boss Sherwood cleared to take charge despite lack of qualifications

Tottenham caretaker coach Tim Sherwood has special permission to take charge tonight against Capital One Cup opponents West Ham United.

The Daily Mail says Sherwood does have his UEFA A and B qualifications, having launched the process when he joined the Tottenham backroom staff, but Premier League rules state that all managers must have their Pro Licence or at least be enrolled on a course.

These rules don't apply until 12 weeks after the initial appointment. So if he is in the job for 12 weeks, Sherwood has 12 weeks to enroll, which shouldn't be a problem.
