Ex-Man United No2 Carlos Queiroz wants to become Tottenham boss
Former Manchester United No2 Carlos Queiroz wants to become the new Tottenham Hotspur boss
Carlos Queiroz says he is “absolutely” interested in becoming the next Tottenham Hotspur manager.
The 60-year-old, who is currently head coach of Iran, spent two spells working as Sir Alex Ferguson’s assistant – during the 2002/03 campaign and between 2004 and 2008.
Tottenham is a club I really appreciate a lot and I have great admiration
Spurs sacked former Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas on Monday following the north London side’s emphatic 5-0 loss to Liverpool at White Hart Lane last weekend.
And Queiroz admitted he would be interested in succeeding his compatriot in the Tottenham hot seat.
“Absolutely. Tottenham is a club I really appreciate a lot and I have great admiration,” said Queiroz.
Meanwhile, Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp backed interim Spurs head coach Tim Sherwood for the role on a permanent basis.
“Tottenham do change managers an awful lot,” Redknapp said.
“I am pleased to see Tim Sherwood having a crack of it. Let’s hope that Tim can get the job. He has a great knowledge of football, knows the game.
“I saw him work with the under-21 team. He has been instrumental with people like Caulker and Townsend coming through. I’d love to see him get the job.
“Owners think it is about names but it is not. Maybe we should give Sherwood a foreign name or a more sexy name and he might get the job, I hope he picks up a few results and gets the job.”
