Sherwood hints at Tottenham switch

Tim Sherwood has stated the ‘silence is deafening’ in regards to his Tottenham future but dispelled rumours he would want to become an assistant were the club to appoint someone else, report Sky Sports.

The former Spurs midfielder succeeded the sacked Andre Villas Boas in December, being handed a contract until the end of next season - and he has overseen an upturn in league form under his tenure.

However there have been persistent reports that the club will look elsewhere to more experienced candidates come the end of the current campaign, with Dutch coach Louis Van Gaal repeatedly linked to White Hart Lane.

There are also reports that an appointment would see Sherwood drop to an assistant role, but the current boss has no interest in working as a number two.

Sherwood, acknowledging his fate was in the club’s hands, said: “"The silence is deafening, isn't it? Look, the decision is up to Daniel. I didn't know if he was here or not. Maybe he was travelling?

"It's up to the club to make the decision. One thing I can guarantee people is that no one cares more than me.

"I want the team to do very well and it hurts me when they don't. I'm afraid I need people in that dressing room to be hurting like I am."

"I never want to be a number two. I'd be no good, I'm too opinionated. I wouldn't want to do the job.

"But I do think there is a place for a technical director. I'm someone who sees the club from the bottom to the top on the training field.

"A lot of clubs need people like that otherwise you get no continuity and end up buying seven or 10 players every window and your turnover of players is too great."

Spurs’ crushing defeat left them four points off fourth place, having played three games more than Manchester City.

Sherwood landed a stinging summary on his players after their appointment, bemoaning a “lack of characters”, and it remains to be seen whether a fifth place finish would be enough to consolidate his position at the club.
