Spurs boss Tim Sherwood has hit out at Dutch bosses Louis Van Gaal and Frank De Boer after the pair openly talked about taking the top job at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham reportedly made approaches for both coaches after sacking Andre Villas-Boas and may yet reopen negotiations in the summer if Sherwood is not deemed the long-term solution.

"It's natural I suppose, it's a big job, but I don't think I would ever tout myself about for a job when someone was already in the hot seat," Sherwood said.

"But if they want to do that, that's up to them. I don't know Frank. I'm not sure. I'm relaxed about it. But it wouldn't be something I would be doing.

Sherwood targeting fourth "They just want to put themselves in the frame. Obviously they are not happy with the jobs they are doing if they are touting themselves for the Tottenham job."
