Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood has revealed that he relishes the managerial role at the club and is driven by a continuous urge to win.

The Lilywhites have been through a bumpy ride this season, never finding the right combination to keep a prolonged spell of winning momentum going.

As a result their Champions League qualification chances now hang in the balance, being currently placed sixth in the Premier League with 59 points from 33 matches.

However, despite the manager being under continuous pressure, he is still relatively cool about it and claims to enjoy the challenge.


"Any day in management is a learning curve", Sherwood was quoted as saying by ITV.

"It's been a baptism of fire, to be honest. It's certainly one I've relished. My family are saying "why?' but it's something that's in me and I'm a winner.

"I will make myself ill before I don't succeed. That's the drive I've had as a manager and I've had in life and I'm going to do it."

A number of high profile managers like Louis van Gaal and Mauricio Pochettino are being linked with the Spurs job. But the 45-year-old does not want to look too much into it.

"I'm used to the continual speculation. When you guys stop asking who's coming in next year I'll go and see a doctor", Sherwood added.
