Tottenham 3 Aston Villa 0: Sherwood would ‘love’ to continue as boss
Tottenham 3 Aston Villa 0: Tim Sherwood declares his desire to stay in charge of Spurs beyond the summer
Tim Sherwood admitted that he would “love” to be given the chance to stay in charge of Tottenham Hotspur beyond the summer after a comfortable final-day win over Aston Villa.
Paulinho put Spurs 1-0 up in the 14th minute at White Hart Lane, before Nathan Baker headed Danny Rose’s cross past his own goalkeeper.
A 59 per cent win ratio is second to none. I’m happy with how I have done
Emmanuel Adebayor then scored from the penalty spot after Gabriel Agbonlahor was penalised for handball in the area.
Spurs finished the season in sixth place, three points shy of their total last term, and Sherwood wants his future to be clarified in the coming days
“I need to speak to the chairman, we know what we have done,” said Sherwood, who took over from sacked Andre Villas-Boas in December.
“It was obviously me, Chris Ramsey and Les Ferdinand who stepped up from the development team and overall we are happy with what we have done, we are not sure we could have done much more.
“It would be nice to get it clarified, we have looked at pre-season a little bit and we need to get to work on those [transfer] targets. Someone else might have a different opinion.”
Asked if he would like to stay in charge, Sherwood said: “Absolutely, I love doing this job, my life would be a lot easier if I wasn’t a manager but I want to do it.
“It’s my life, it’s what I want to be involved in and continuing doing it.
“I can only judged for the season when I’ve taken over. A 59 per cent win ratio is second to none. I’m happy with how I have done.”
