Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood insists he is just focusing on his job despite rumours linking other managers to White Hart Lane.
Sherwood has managed to steer Spurs back up the table and into the European places, despite taking charge when the club were in seventh place after Andre Villas-Boas’ unsuccessful reign.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy handed Sherwood a contract until the end of the 2014-15 season, and his tenure started well with nine wins in 16 games.
Levy and the club are desperate for Champions League football, and so the pressure is on for Sherwood to deliver. Rumours have recently linked Louis van Gaal and Frank de Boer to the club, but Sherwood insists he is planning to stay and prove he is the right man.
He said: “I just have to carry on with my job, which is what I am doing at the moment.
You listen to it and it is disappointing because I never tout myself for anyone’s job while someone else is in it.
“I would see myself as more of a manager who builds something over time but I realise at the moment that is not possible because I have been dealt a hand here and I have to try to win games. I’m going from game to game to try to keep myself in a job.
“At the moment it’s a balancing act and hopefully I will get an opportunity to bring my players in and build something for the future after the season finishes.”
