Sherwood hits out at Tottenham job hunters
Tim Sherwood has criticised the managers manoeuvring to replace him as Tottenham Hotspur manager, the Daily Telegraph has reported.
Sherwood took over at White Hart Lane in December after Andre Villas-Boas was sacked and was given an 18-month contract. But speculation has suggested that Sherwood will be removed from his post at the end of the season, with Louis van Gaal and Glenn Hoddle among the names mentioned as contenders to step in.
Van Gaal has publically said he wants to work in the Premier League while Hoddle was accused by Sherwood of campaigning for the role in the manner of the Dutchman. “Every time I speak to [the media] it’s the same: ‘This manager’s coming in...van Gaal, then Hoddle, this one and that one,” Sherwood said after Spurs beat Stoke City 1-0 at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday.
“Some of these managers are actually touting themselves for my job. I don’t think that’s right. It’s something that doesn’t sit well with me. If anyone ever asks me about another job I just tell them that they’ve got another manager. Until they haven’t got a manager and until I haven’t got a job, say nothing.”
Tottenham are currently sixth in the Premier League table, three points behind Everton and four adrift of fourth-placed Arsenal ahead of the Gunners’ home game with Newcastle on Monday night.
