QPR boss Harry Redknapp says Tim Sherwood deserves a long-term chance at Tottenham.

Redknapp brought Sherwood to Spurs during his time in charge.

He told talkSPORT: "He knows the people he works for want Champions League football. If he doesn't get it he's going to be under the cosh.

"He could be a fantastic manager for Tottenham though. Whether they finish fourth or fifth isn't suddenly going to make him a great manager or a bad manager.

"He needs time and, if they give him that, then they'll have an excellent manager for the future. Why not stick with a young English boy who's come through [the ranks]?"
