Sherwood ‘not wanted enough’ by Crystal Palace

Former Tottenham Head Coach Tim Sherwood has revealed that he pulled out of the running to become the new manager of Crystal Palace because he felt the club did not want him enough, Sky Sports has reported.

Sherwood became the favourite to fill the vacancy on Thursday due to previous frontrunner Malky Mackay missing out after being reported to the FA by previous employers Cardiff City over offensive text messages he sent to former head of recruitment Iain Moody.


However, by then he had already decided that a move to Selhurst Park was not right for him, after feeling that Crystal Palace officials had not shown enough interest in giving him the job. "My feeling when I was interviewed last Sunday was that the race was already run and that the job was going to Malky Mackay,’ he said.


"Iain Moody was in the room during the interview and that did nothing to change my mind that Mackay was the favourite. If I had been offered the job early in the process, soon after my interview, I would have taken it. The longer the process went on at Palace and the more names that came up, the more I felt that Steve was keeping his options open.


"I know a lot of managers were interested but at some point, as a manager, you want to know the interviews have stopped and you’re the club’s first choice. That was why on Thursday night my agent sent a message to Steve to say that I was no longer interested in being in contention for the job."
