Teddy wants Pompey job


TeddyThe Portsmouth News understands that West Ham attacking coach Teddy Sheringham is among 60-70 realistic candidates to declare their interest in the Portsmouth manager role vacated by Andy Awford last week. They claim sources close to Sheringham say the 49-year-old is ready to move into football management and sees Fratton Park as the ideal starting point. The former West Ham and Portsmouth striker was appointed Hammer’s attacking coach on a part-time basis back in May 2014.

 With Allardyce’s own job is under serious doubt with his contract expiring this summer  it also raises question marks over the futures of his back room staff including assistant boss Neil McDonald, coach Ian Hendon and Teddy Sheringham.
Teddy scored 10 goals in 38 appearances for Pompey during their maiden season in the Premier League in 2003-04. The striker’s hat-trick in a 4-0 Fratton Park success over Bolton in the third match of the season even lifted Harry Redknapp’s side into top spot.
