Tottenham coach Sherwood wants Blackburn talks
Wednesday 17 October 2012
Tim Sherwood is eager to meet with the owners of Blackburn Rovers as the Tottenham Hotspur technical co-ordinator warms to the idea of filling the vacant managerial position at Ewood Park, the Daily Mirror has reported.
The newspaper adds that Sherwood wants to sit down with the Venky’s hierarchy in charge of running the club to get further insight into the budget he would have available, as well as listen to the owners’ plans for the future of the club.
Blackburn are said to have wanted to speak with Sherwood last weekend but did not receive permission for the meeting from Tottenham. But if Spurs do give their consent then Sherwood will travel to Switzerland to meet with Balaji and Venkatesh Rao.
Sherwood was the Blackburn captain when Rovers won the Premier League title in 1995, under the management of Kenny Dalglish. The former England midfielder left Blackburn for Tottenham in 1999, having spent seven years at the club.
Ian Holloway is also a contender to replace Steve Kean at Blackburn, with the Mirror claiming the current Blackpool boss would actually represent a cheaper alternative than Sherwood.
