Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood is disappointed with the speculation circulating around his position at the club, as many media outlets believe the North London side are in talks with Ajax coach Frank de Boer. Sherwood replaced Andre Villas-Boas earlier in the season, but has failed to make a significant impact in terms of football.
“When clubs are coming out and saying Tottenham have actually spoken to them and managers are coming out and saying they’ve spoken to them too, it’s disappointing,” said Sherwood.
“Somewhere along the line someone is telling porkies, I don’t know for sure.
“Tottenham are not making any comment on that until the season finishes. So I’m just carrying on as I normally do, being as professional as I can and preparing the team.”
Spurs fans were expecting the appointment of Louis Van Gaal, however following the dismissal of David Moyes it would appear that the Dutch man may be headed for Old Trafford. Spurs can equal a club record of 72 points by winning their final two league games, but look set to miss out on Champions League football again.
Sherwood also pointed to Liverpool’s handling of Brendan Rodgers when defending his position.
“We’ll just have to wait and see. It’s harder and harder to get that Champions League spot,” he said. “The emergence of Liverpool this season has been a real minus for us. They’ve given Brendan Rodgers the time to build. They finished seventh last year but they had the correct man – look at them now.”
It will be interesting to see how this situation develops come the end of the season.
