Tottenham head coach Tim Sherwood says his rumoured replacement Frank de Boer would have a "hard act to follow".
Ajax manager de Boer said he was open to speaking to Spurs about taking over amid rumours the north London club had contacted the Dutch champions about his availability.
"What am I going to do? I'm not going to roll up and die, I'm just going to get on with my job, which is to try and prepare my team to win football matches and whatever will be will be," he said ahead of this Saturday's derby against West Ham United.
"I've just got to carry on with my business, show my personal pride and professionalism and make sure that those lads are prepared to win for the team and for the fans and for this great club.
"I don't think he is too interested in looking at what I am doing already because if he did then he would see he has got a hard act to follow."
West Ham United fans have been warned they will face action if they take part in anti-Semitic chanting towards Spurs fans on Saturday.
Spurs fans were subjected to anti-Semitic abuse from a section of West Ham fans during last season's fixture at White Hart Lane in November 2012.
"Working with the police, the Club will continue to adopt a zero tolerance policy towards any form of discriminatory behaviour," a club statement said.
"Any fan found to be acting inappropriately - including racist, anti-Semitic and homophobic behaviour - will be punished to the full extent of the law and banned from attending matches."
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho appeared to criticise Eden Hazard today after claiming he does not sacrifice himself for the team.
The Belgian winger questioned Mourinho's tactics in Chelsea's 3-1 defeat to Atletico Madrid when he said the Blues are set up to counter-attack instead of taking the initiative in games.
"When the comments come from a player like Eden it's normal because he's not the kind of player to sacrifice himself for the team," Mourinho said ahead of Sunday's match against Norwich City.
"Normally you get these kind of comments from players like him, from players that can't resolve a problem like we had in the first goal.
"Eden is the kind of player that is not so mentally ready to look back to his left-back and to leave his life for him."
