Tottenham Hotspur manager Tim Sherwood has hit out at the managers who are looking to replace him at Spurs.

Sherwood took charge of Tottenham after Andre Villas-Boas was sacked by the club's board in December last year.

"Some of these managers are touting themselves for my job, I don't think that's right", the 45-year-old told the BBC.

"Every press conference I do it's 'this manager's coming in' – [Louis] van Gaal, then [Glenn] Hoddle, this one and that one.”


Sherwood feels that managers should support each other rather than talk about replacing someone when he is already in charge of the club, insisting he would adopt a very different approach to those who have expressed interest in his post.

"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 have won 12 of their 20 league games under Sherwood and are two victories away from earning their highest ever points tally in the Premier League – 73 points.
