Tottenham's Tim Sherwood: 'I have got to be in the frame' for top job
Tottenham caretaker boss Tim Sherwood believes he has "got to be in the frame" for the vacant managerial position at White Hart Lane.
Sherwood, who took over after
Andre Villas-Boas's sacking
on Monday, will take charge of his first Premier League game away to Southampton on Sunday.
The 44-year-old will remain in control of first-team affairs while Spurs identify Villas-Boas's successor.
