Sherwood joins Redknapp coaching staff at Spurs
Former Tottenham midfielder Tim Sherwood has confirmed he will join Harry Redknapp's coaching staff at White Hart Lane.
Redknapp replaced Juande Ramos as Spurs boss on Saturday night and moved quickly to add Kevin Bond and Clive Allen to his coaching staff.
Earlier this week Redknapp admitted he was in talks with former player Sherwood about appointing him as a coach at the club.
Sherwood held talks with Redknapp today at the club and told Sky Sports News: "I will be here in some capacity. I'm pleased to have the opportunity to be involved at such a great football club.
"I'm not sure how I'm going to be involved. It's only going to be part-time because the club won't be in my mind 100% of the time,'' the 39-year-old added.
"It's a fantastic football club. If someone would have asked me where I wanted to get back into football then I would have said Tottenham Hotspur.
"I don't know what the plans are. This a great club. I have it heart and I want to see them do well. Spurs should not be at the bottom of the table.''
Redknapp, who managed Sherwood at Portsmouth, said: ''I would like to get Tim involved. It's about time we got the younger guys involved. People like him and Les Ferdinand have a lot to offer. Get him in a couple of days a week.
''Tim's got a terrific football brain. I'd like to tap in to that and get him on the coaching ladder and see if he likes it. Les, what a great fellow to have around. We've got to have English coaches coming in coaching at the top of the Premier League.''
Redknapp also admitted he was excited by the news of a proposed new stadium for Tottenham, even though it was unlikely to be completed for six years.
He said: ''I hope I'll be here to see it. If I'm doing a good job I'd love to stay long term but it's a results business and if you do get them you'll stay around. You never know.''
