Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood has laughed off Dutch pair Louis van Gaal and Frank de Boer touting for his job. Both Ajax coach De Boer and Holland manager Van Gaal have spoken publicly about taking the Spurs post.

"I don't blame them," said Sherwood. "They just want to put themselves in the frame. Obviously, they're not happy with the jobs they're doing if they're touting themselves for the Tottenham job.

"It's natural I suppose, it's a big job, but I don't think I'd ever tout myself about for job when someone was already in the hot-seat. If they want to do that, that's up to them. I'm relaxed about it. But it wouldn't be something I'd be doing."
