Ex-England and Manchester United striker Teddy Sheringham has applied for the vacant manager’s job at Portsmouth, according to The News.
Portsmouth are currently without a manager since Andy Awford was sacked last week, with the likes of Harry Redknapp, Phil Brown and Nigel Wothington in the frame.
Sheringham currently has no managerial experience to date but is currently an attacking coach at Premier League side West Ham and has gained rave reviews of his work, especially in the first part of the season when the Hammers were battling in the top four.
The former Spurs and Hammers striker played for Pompey during their debut Premier League season in 2003-04, scoring 10 goals in 38 appearances at Fratton Park.
He scored a rememberable hat-trick against Bolton in a 4-0 win to take Pompey to top-spot in just their third match of the season.
The News reports that they understand the 49-year-old is among 60-70 realistic candidates to declare interest in the job and that he is keen to start his managerial career with Pompey as an ideal start point.
The Fratton Park outfit currently sit 14th position in Sky Bet League Two, in what has turned out to be a very inconsistent season for the club.
