Sherwood speaks on Blackburn job rumours


Tottenham coach Tim Sherwood has played down reports linking him with the role of Blackburn manager following Steve Kean’s resignation on Friday.

Sherwood has been tipped for a bright future in management after being brought into the Spurs backroom team by former boss Harry Redknapp. Sherwood was retained when AVB took over, but has left the door open for the former Blackburn captain to take over the role at Ewood Park.

“That’s all they are – just rumours,” Sherwood said. “That’s all I know about it.

“I’ve got a great job where I am. There ain’t nothing to consider. It’s just speculation.

“I love what I do. I’m happy at the football club – it’s a great project.”

“I can’t comment on the Blackburn situation because I have Steve Kean as a friend and I respect him,” AVB said when asked about the speculation.

“But if Tim is a candidate, he has to make a personal decision and speak to the club.”
