Tim Sherwood says he would "love" to carry on as Tottenham manager and insists he would not have taken the job if he knew it would only be for a short period.

Sherwood guided Spurs into the Europa League for next season with a 3-0 win over Aston Villa as his side finished sixth in the Premier League.

"Absolutely, I love doing this job, my life would be a lot easier if I wasn't a manager but I want to do it," Sherwood told BBC Sport when asked whether he wants to continue in his role. "It's my life, it's what I want to be involved in and continuing doing it.

The managerial position at White Hart Lane has been a hot topic over the past few weeks, with the likes of Frank de Boer, Louis van Gaal and Mauricio Pochettino all being linked to Sherwood's job.

But Sherwood, who was appointed on a full-time basis in December on an 18-month deal, has made it clear he wants to continue in his role.

"If I had started the season, we would have finished in the Champions League places. It will be interesting to see how I am judged when I meet the chairman," he said. "If I do leave, it can't be on results. If I'd have known it would only be for five months, I wouldn't have done it, to be honest.

"I can only be judged for the season when I've taken over. A 59% win ratio is second to none. I'm happy with how I have done."
