New permanent Spurs boss Tim Sherwood says he is pleased to be compared to former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp.

Sherwood was appointed chief at White Hart Lane until the end of next season on Monday and is preparing for the Boxing Day clash at home to West Brom.

The former midfielder has been back at the club as a coach since 2008, when Redknapp gave him a job, and he has been compared to his former mentor in the way he works.

Sherwood says that is something that sits well with him as he looks for success in his first management position.

"That's got to be a compliment, hasn't it?" Sherwood said. "I wouldn't mind following his career and I wouldn't mind being a pound note behind him as well.

"I am not trying to be Harry Redknapp but it is a simple game, though, isn't it? If you can't pass the ball to your own team-mates then you have a serious problem because you are going to have to keep on defending.

"That's what we did in the first half at Southampton. But moving forward we just have to try to get the players better."
