Les Ferdinand and Chris Ramsey have left their roles as first-team coaches at Tottenham.

The pair were part of Tim Sherwood's coaching team but have departed White Hart Lane after Mauricio Pochettino replaced Sherwood as manager.

Ramsey, 52, joined the club in 2004 and previously oversaw the under-21 side and development squad.

Ferdinand, 47, has worked at Tottenham in various roles since joining the club in 2008 as a specialist striker coach.

Former England striker Ferdinand played for Tottenham between 1997 and 2003, scoring 39 goals in 146 appearances.

Sherwood, who promoted Ramsey to work with the first-team following his appointment as manager in December 2013 on an 18-month contract, was sacked at the end of last season.

Pochettino, 42, resigned from Southampton in May to take the Tottenham job.

His assistant Jesus Perez, first-team coach Miguel D'Agostino and goalkeeping coach Toni Jimenez also left Southampton to join him at White Hart Lane.
