Sheringham looks to management


sheriTeddy Sheringham wants to become a manager and claims that’s down to Sam Allardyce.

The Irons attacking coach has been in his Upton Park job for three months  and admits he’s one happy bunny.

He explained: “The manager involves me in everything and I’m really enjoying myself. I see everything he does and the stuff that he has to get involved in.

“It’s really made me feel I want to have a shot at management. I’d like  to do that.

He explained on Sky Sports this evening (Sun): “It’s great working with him and you can see the lads love playing for him.”

    I thought Teddy was teaching the new guys the rudiments about being a Professional Footballer – that a Four of a Kind was better than a Full House and a Flush is better than a Straight!

    If he’s that good why doesn’t Teddy actually say what he does then? I’d love to know..this is just mutual backslapping with no substance.

    He was bought in as a coach for the attackers,obviously at times they will all then train together.I for one,think he and Sam and Macca,all work well together.I suppose he has picked up the management bug,as he has seen the strikers performing as he had asked them too,and when you see a plan come together as it did against Liverpool,it must be a buzz.He is probably talking,as this is his long term ambition,to be a manager.As a player i remember being behind the goal in the southbank as he calmly backheeled in a ball from the left as we were watching, putting us 2-0 up against Stoke,thats how it remained You can only coach strikers so much,then i think they either have that something special as a forward or they dont.
