Tottenham boss discusses ‘strange situation’

Tottenham Hotspur boss Tim Sherwood has spoken for the first time since the club were forced to deny making an approach for Ajax manager Frank de Boer.

The Eredivisie side claimed Spurs had approached them about the availability of de Boer earlier this week, but that was strongly denied by the North London club.

And Sherwood, who signed an 18-month contract in December, admits the whole situation was a little strange for him but he will not let it get in the way of Spurs’ final two games of the season.

He told SkySports: “It was a strange situation, when a club has come out and said they’ve been spoken to and so has the manager and the club that I am working for is coming out and denying it.

“That’s where we are with it and I’m no further forward with that. The people upstairs will know whether I’m good enough to take on this club and if I’m the person they want to take on this club.

“The next two games won’t make any difference.”

And Sherwood also admits he is unsure of whether he will be the manager at White Hart Lane next season, but will be sitting down with chairman Daniel Levy at the end of the season to find out whether his position is untenable or not.

“We play West Han and then we play at home to Aston Villa. After that I will sit down with the chairman and we’ll decide what the plan is moving forward,” he added.

“Whatever will be, will be at the end of that. I’ve just got to carry on with my business, show my personal pride and professionalism, and make sure that the lads are prepared to win for team, for the fans and for this great club.

“What will happen at the end of the season? Who knows?”
