Tottenham need manager appointment soon, says Sherwood

Interim Head Coach of Tottenham Hotspur, Tim Sherwood, has said the club needs a full-time appointment as quickly as possible, BBC Sport has reported.

Sherwood took charge of his first Premier League game on Sunday, overseeing a 3-2 win at Southampton, and has confirmed he wants to be considered as a candidate to replace Andre Villas-Boas, who was sacked a week ago following Spurs’ 5-0 home defeat against Liverpool.

The former Tottenham midfielder’s comments come as Netherlands Coach Louis van Gaal is linked with the position, with the suggestion that the ex-Ajax, Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss could sign in at White Hart Lane after the World Cup. Van Gaal has hinted at his interest in the vacancy, but says he would not be able to hold both positions at once.

I've always said that I want to work in the Premier League, so there's a chance,” van Gaal said of rumours linking him with the post. “Everyone who knows me knows I won't do two jobs at the same time,” he added. “I've also read that Frank de Boer and Guus Hiddink were in the picture [for the Spurs job].

Sherwood, who captained Blackburn Rovers to the Premier League title in 1994-95, restored Emmanuel Adebayor to the first team set-up after the striker was frozen out by Villas-Boas, and saw the former Arsenal forward score twice in the win over the Saints. A Joos Hooiveld own goal proved the difference, cancelling out strikes from Adam Lallana and Rickie Lambert as Tottenham moved to seventh in the table, four points short of the Champions League places.
