Sherwood explains how he would deal with this big change at Aston Villa

Tim Sherwood says he would focus on the team and nothing else if Aston Villa changed owners.

Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood has explained in the Birmingham Mail how he would deal with a takeover at the club.

Sherwood has explained what his approached would be, as the paper claims a potential £150 million acquisition of the club involving Arsenal legend Tony Adams.

He’s not pulling the wool over the eyes of anyone and hasn’t claimed to be safe, suggesting his only focus would be on the club if a change of ownership happened.

“It depends on who wants to come in to run the club - Perhaps they might not like a British manager. Not a lot of owners do,” he said.

“I don’t worry, I just get on with what I can do. I can only do my best for the football club. I have the football club’s best interest at heart and hopefully that will stand me in good stead.”

One of the most impressive things about Sherwood since he took over at Villa Park has been the way he’s constantly stressed the importance of the best interests of the football club.

He’s a very positive and enthusiastic manager, determined for the club to perform to their full potential.

For any new owner to come in and overlook what he represents and what he offers the club would be surprising, especially one involving a figure like Adams who understands the English game well.

Sherwood won’t let any uncertainty over the ownership at the club affect his job, because Villa are still facing the huge challenge of staying up which for now needs to be the only priority.
