Speculation disappoints Tim Sherwood
Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood says he is "disappointed" by continued speculation about his future and suggested reports reputedly coming from inside the club may not be truthful.
The under-fire Sherwood told Sky Sports he was saddened by the whole affair.
"When clubs are coming out and saying Tottenham have actually spoken to them and managers are coming out and saying they've spoken to them too, it's disappointing," Sherwood said.
"Somewhere along the line someone is telling porkies, I don't know for sure.
"Tottenham are not making any comment on that until the season finishes. So I'm just carrying on as I normally do, being as professional as I can and preparing the team."
If Tottenham win their final two games, they will equal the club record for points in the Premier League, a benchmark which Sherwood is keeping an eye on.
"I've got two more games to go," Sherwood said. "We've had a good run recently. If we can get maximum points then we will get a record amount of points for Tottenham which is 72. It will just be a shame that we didn't start the season any better.
"I just get on with it. There's not a press conference I've done since I took over when another name hasn't been mentioned.
"I've just got to get on with the job. The fans deserve that. In my opinion we've got one of the best fans nucleus in the country. We've got 40,000 fans waiting for a season ticket. It's a huge club. They deserve a manager who will give 100 percent to the cause."
Sherwood defended his record and placed blame on his predecessor, Andre Villas-Boas, who was fired in December.
"I think it's gone reasonably well for me in the Premier League," Sherwood said. "If we'd started the season better we might be in a better position in the league table."
