The interim manager of Tottenham Hotspurs Tim Sherwood has described the 48 hours up to and including the West Ham match as "madness", after the side lost 2-1 in the Premier League encounter on Wednesday. Sherwood said:
It's different. I'm not used to sleeping two hours a night and waking up thinking about footballers.
Someone asked me the other day, I said I slept like a baby, I woke up crying four times in the night.

Tottenham Hotspurs interim boss Tim Sherwood has said he is "up for the challenge" of being the manager of the team despite losses in the Premier League. Sherwood added:
The immediate future is up in the air, that's as much as I know. I'm up for a challenge. I always have been. I'm very opinionated.
I know a certain way I need to play. I think I can manage men and deal with them and be honest with them.
I think the chairman and the football club need to make the correct decision and find the manager who's best compatible to take this football club forward.

Sherwood was appointed interim boss after Villas-Boas' sacking and took charge of Wednesday night's 2-1 Capital One Cup quarter-final loss to West Ham.
The former Spurs captain is yet to hear from chairman Daniel Levy if he will be in charge for Sunday's match with Southampton, but he suggested he is keen on the full-time job.
