Tim Sherwood dugout fan: 'I just told him to make a few substitutions...and I kept the gilet!'
Funny incident happened during Spurs' 3-0 win over Aston Villa
In what could well have been his final game in charge of Tottenham Hotspur, in one of the funniest moments of this season, the Spurs manager Tim Sherwood invited a fan to take his place in the White Hart Lane dugout towards the end of the 3-0 victory over Aston Villa.
Sherwood then directed the supporter to his own seat and gave the fan his famous gilet to wear.
On BBC's 606 show after the game, the fan, who is called Danny, described the bizarre day, and why Sherwood brought him down to the hotseat.
"It was great humour from him [Sherwood]," he said. "Our season tickets are there so we sit near him every week.
"To be fair to him he's not frightened to talk with the fans and all season we've had good banter with him. He's always happy to chat.
"During the game I called some substitutions that I thought he should make and it just so happened he went on to make them.
"We were 3-0 up against Aston Villa and not really showing much so it was a good opportunity to get some young players on which he obviously agreed with.
"Suddenly he said: 'You know what? You might as well sit in the hotseat'. So I thought, why not?
"It was just surreal I didn't know what to make of it. I didn't know if I d get in trouble for going over the barriers."
And did Danny get to keep the gilet in the end?
"As I was walking away, he said: 'You can keep the jacket mate'. He then shook my hand and patted me on the back."
Sherwood, who is expected to be relieved of his duties this summer, had his own views on the memorable incident, telling the BBC show.
"That guy sits up there every week I'm here, and he's telling me: 'Get him off he's rubbish, he's an embarrassment, he's this, he's that'," the manager revealed.
"So I invited him down to show what he can do. He half-bottled it at first but in the end he took it up."
