Arsene Wenger has expressed his “sadness” at Tim Sherwood’s sacking by Tottenham Hotspur this week and admitted his concern at the speed of the Premier League’s managerial merry-go-round.

Sherwood, who was appointed following Andre Villas-Boas’s sacking in December, was axed five months into his 18-month contract on Tuesday.

And Arsenal boss Wenger believes that the growing trend of clubs rapidly dispensing with managers in the English top flight is a cause for concern.

“For me, if it’s a Tottenham manager or any other manager it’s always sad news when somebody loses his job,” said Wenger.

“The only thing that looks a bit worrying is that the speed of the rotation level in the Premier League gets quicker and quicker.

“That’s not a very good sign for the Premier League.”

Frank de Boer and Mauricio Pochettino are among the candidates reportedly in the running to succeed Sherwood at White Hart Lane.

“I think every club has the responsibility to make the right decision,” said Wenger. “I believe that technical stability is important for the development of the game.

“At the moment people think a lot about that so we accept in our job as well that if directors are not happy, or owners are not happy with us, that we can lose the job.

“But still technical stability is important for the development of the game.”
