But the former Aston Villa boss insists he won't rush back into a job
Tim Sherwood is hoping his experience at the National Coaches Conference can propel him back into football management but insists there’s no rush.
The man who was sacked as Aston Villa manager in October, says he’s not eagerly seeking a new job as the summer managerial merry-go-round kicks off.
He said: “I want to get back into management now but I know there’s no rush.
“I am looking forward to working with a squad again but I’m not eagerly seeking a job out.
“If it comes along, it comes.”
Exactly a year after leading Villa out at Wembley in the FA Cup final, Sherwood spent last weekend in the company of Thierry Henry, Marcel Desailly, Mikel Arteta and Sol Campbell at the National Coaches Conference 2016.
He admits he’s still got a lot to learn about the game.
He said: “At the end of three days I felt like I’d been there a week.
“I was happy with my own session but it’s always difficult when you get a group of boys who don’t know your session and are working with you for the first time.
“I tried to put some ideas and pictures in their minds and hopefully the coaches watching can take some of it away and use it at their own clubs.”
Looking back on the conference the former Premier League title winner said: “It was an excellent way to finish off the long journey to the A Licence and the Pro Licence and it’s very worthwhile.
“Every time I’ve been to the conference I’ve learned a lot.
“The theory lectures were great and I learned plenty from the practical sessions from the other guys on the course.
“We’ve seen lots of different levels and experiences and that’s what makes it good. It’s all so diverse.
“There are so many different aspects to it, it’s hard to pick one highlight.”
