Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that Les Ferdinand and Chris Ramsey have left their coaching roles at the north London club.

Ferdinand and Ramsey were a key part of Tim Sherwood’s coaching staff after the former Blackburn Rovers midfielder replaced Andre Villas-Boas at White Hart Lane last December.

However, Sherwood was sacked by Spurs at the end of the season and chairman Daniel Levy has appointed former Argentina defender Mauricio Pochettino as the new manager.

The former Southampton boss is set to appoint his own coaching staff at Tottenham, resulting in Ferdinand and Ramsey leaving the club.

A statement read: “The club can announce that Les Ferdinand and Chris Ramsey have left the club.

“Les returned to the club in a coaching capacity in 2008, initially working with the strikers before linking up with Tim Sherwood and Chris Ramsey coordinating the Development Squad and most recently working with the first team.

“As a player, Les scored 39 goals in 146 appearances in our colours between 1997 and 2003.

“Chris joined the club in 2004, working within our Academy set-up, before running our Under-21 side and Development Squad in conjunction with Tim and Les, stepping up to a First Team coaching role in December.

“We should like to thank them for their contribution and wish them well for the future.”
