Tottenham boss Sherwood aware of Pochettino rumours

Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood knows Southampton's Mauricio Pochettino is being linked with his job.

Pochettino was strongly linked to the managerial vacancy at Spurs when Andre Villas-Boas was sacked last month but Sherwood, who was instead handed an 18-month contract, insists his job is very different.

Sherwood said: "The expectation at this club is far greater than they have at Southampton.

"We were talking about that last week on the development side and used Andros Townsend as an example.

"If he was at Southampton he would not have had nine loans - he would have had his development through the leagues there; League One, the Championship and so on. Like Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott. That is the market they are in."
