Tottenham Hotspur head coach Tim Sherwood reveals that managers have advised him to calm down.

Tottenham Hotspur head coach Tim Sherwood has revealed that other managers have advised him to calm down on the sidelines.

Sherwood clashed with both Benfica manager Jorge Jesus and Arsenal's Bacary Sagna last week before choosing to sit in the stands for his side's draw with the Portuguese club on Thursday evening.

"With respect to the man in the street, I don't listen to that too much," Sherwood told members of the press. "But I listen to managers who have been in the situation.

"I don't want to tell you who's contacted me but some people have given me a little bit of advice. They know that I'm my own man and I'm not going to be anyone different and that's absolutely right.

"But if I can try and be a bit calmer and not manage on emotion too much, I think it would help."

Spurs, who are currently fifth in the Premier League, host Southampton at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
