Louis van Gaal is said to be in favour of the job at Tottenham Hotspur as he considers his future as Netherlands coach. Van Gaal is the bookmakers favourite to takeover at White Hart Lane in the summer as chairman Daniel Levy looks to replace Tim Sherwood. Sherwood initially improved results after the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas but a recent slump has seen the club’s Champions League hopes hanging by a thread. Levy is rumoured to have drawn up a short-list of possible replacements, despite Sherwood being handed an 18-month deal. It has been reported that Levy wants a more experienced coach at the helm, with Louis van Gaal thought to be at the top of the list. Spurs will face competition from Spartak Moscow for the Dutch coach who master-minded Ajax’s Champions League triumph in 1995. However, according to information Fichajes.net, the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach favours a move to north London.
