Coaches Kevin Bond and Joe Jordan leave Tottenham
Thursday 28 June 2012
Tottenham have parted company with assistant coaches Kevin Bond and Joe Jordan, the Barclays Premier League club have confirmed.
Bond and Jordan have exited White Hart Lane in the wake of Harry Redknapp's departure as manager last week.
"We can now formally confirm that Kevin Bond and Joe Jordan have left the club following Harry Redknapp's departure as manager," read a statement on Tottenham's official website, http://www.tottenhamhotspur.com.
Bond and Jordan were an integral part of Redknapp's back room staff and oversaw the running of team affairs while he was recovering from heart surgery in November.
The duo were also prominent during Redknapp's court case in January and February when the 65-year-old was found not guilty of two counts of cheating the public revenue.
Today's move clears the path for Andre Villas-Boas to install his own coaching team when he arrives at White Hart Lane.
The former Chelsea boss has reportedly won the race to succeed Redknapp, despite failing to impress at Stamford Bridge, and is expected to be officially unveiled next week.
Former Blackburn and Tottenham midfielder Tim Sherwood is the only member of Redknapp's team to escape the cull.
"Kevin and Joe joined after Harry's appointment in 2008," continued the statement.
"We should like to thank them for their contribution and achievements during their time at the Club and wish them all the best for the future."
