New Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood has welcomed comparisons with Harry Redknapp.

It has not gone unnoticed that his first two games have seen the team perform with the same spirit of adventure that was the hallmark of Redknapp's Tottenham, who twice finished in the top four.

"That's got to be a compliment hasn't it?" said Sherwood, who was confirmed as permanent successor to Andre Villas-Boas on Monday.

"I wouldn't mind following his career. I wouldn't mind being a pound note behind him as well."
