Tim Sherwood enjoying the pressure at Tottenham

The Spurs boss says he is not worried about his future and is instead concentrating on ensuring that his side wins its five remaining Premier League games.

Tottenham coach Tim Sherwood says he is enjoying the pressure that he has come under since taking over at White Hart Lane in December.

The former England international has faced a barrage of questions regarding his future since being charged with the task of replacing Andre-Villas Boas at the end of last year, particularly after heavy defeats against Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool.

Goal UK reported the 45-year-old will be replaced at the end of the season, with Netherlands coach Louis van Gaal the favorite to take over, but Sherwood says the uncertainty surrounding his future does not bother him.

"The speculation has never eased since I came in. I've always fended off the questions. I don't see a difference from the first hour to now," he told reporters. "I've enjoyed it and perversely I've enjoyed the pressure. I'm not sure I could do without it now. That [job speculation] will iron itself out in due course. The job for me is to worry about preparing the team, like I've done this week."

Tottenham faces West Brom on Saturday having beaten Sunderland 5-1 at White Hart Lane on Monday and Sherwood says his team has momentum as it heads to the Hawthorns.

"We had a good week's training and we're really going to West Brom on the front foot and trying to entertain those great Tottenham fans and get three points," he added. "It's just about me concentrating on the game and today I'm concentrating on the game tomorrow. I think those questions are not for me to answer.

"It's just for me to worry about football matches and hopefully trying to win the next five games for Tottenham."
