Sherwood says current job will be last at Tottenham

Tim Sherwood admits the manager's job could be his last at Tottenham.

If Sherwood is displaced at the end of the season, he has no intention of returning to work with the Spurs youth teams, despite his passion for youth development.

"I would go back to doing that job," he said. "I'm not sure I'd go back to doing it here but I'd definitely go back and do it somewhere else.

"I feel very passionately about kids getting the opportunity, and managers recognising when a player should get the chance but you can't force that. If the kids ain't good enough, they shouldn't get an opportunity but if they are, give them a fair chance, give them a crack.

"I read too much about how we ain't got players in this country. We certainly have. They just don't have the opportunity. There's no platform for them to play and if they're not getting a chance to play in the Premier League, where you going to play?

"You put them out on loan to the Championship or League One, where it's like a different sport almost. It's no platform and the Under 21 league in my opinion is average."
