The Englishman was only appointed to take over from previous boss Andre Villas-Boas in the White Hart Lane dug out in December, with Sherwood being handed an 18-month contract by the north London club’s chairman Daniel Levy.

However, despite Sherwood having kept Tottenham in contention for a top-four finish in the Premier League this campaign, and with it the possibility of still competing in the next season’s Uefa Champions League, rumours have still being doing the rounds of late regarding the 45-year-old’s future going forward in north London.

In fact, of late the likes of former AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri, as well as ex-Spurs boss Glenn Hoddle, Louis van Gaal, Mauricio Pochettino and David Moyes have all been heavily linked with Sherwood’s job, something that is now clearly beginning to frustrate him.

“Every press conference I do it’s: ‘This manager’s coming in’ – Van Gaal, then Hoddle, this one and that one,” Sherwood said after Spurs had won 1-0 at Stoke City on Saturday afternoon. “Some of these managers are touting themselves for my job. I don’t think that’s right.

“At every press conference at our training centre it’s: ‘You’re keeping the seat warm for someone else’. Yeah I am, but the seat’s getting quite hot!”
