Sherwood admits he wants the Tottenham manager's job on a permanent basis

Tim Sherwood has admitted that he wants to land the Tottenham manager’s job on a permanent basis after acting as caretaker following the dismissal of Andre Villas-Boas, according to Sky Sports.

The former Tottenham and Blackburn midfielder stepped in for the north Londoner’s Capital One Cup tie with West Ham at White Hart Lane, and despite Spurs crashing out of the competition Sherwood believes he has all the qualities required to be a successful manager at the club.

“If it was down to me I'd be getting a ten-year contract now, but football doesn't work like that,” said the 44-year-old.

“I know all about the football club, I played here, it's my club. I know what the supporters want and I know what they demand, but it's not my decision to make the appointments and we need to respect the men who make those appointments.

“We have to speak long-term with the chairman, it's his decision.”

Ajax boss Frank de Boer is top of technical director Franco Baldini’s wishlist, but the former Dutch international is keen to stay where he is, and Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino has denied any contact has been made about him taking the job.

Sherwood, who has the support of former Spurs boss Harry Redknapp, is not phased by rumours linking other, more experienced names with the post, and believes the media are generally the ones to come up with the names – not the club itself.

“I don't think Daniel is linking them to himself, it's the press who are linking the names. They are all good guys, good managers.

“The club and the manager have to be compatible, it's not always about the biggest name, he might have done well at another club , he might not do well at this one.

“It's up to the chairman and the board to make the correct decision that's right for the long-term future of the club as it's not good to keep changing managers.”
