Sheringham will NOT want to be the next West Ham boss.

Tony Cascarino says former West Ham and Manchester United striker Teddy Sheringham is eager to move into management but won’t be taking over from Sam Allardyce at Upton Park.

Sheringham who played for the Red Devils, Tottenham and the Hammers is currently working as a striker's coach at the east London club and has been reported to be one of the favourites to be the next boss at the club in the summer.

However, Cascarino backs the Premier League legend Sheringham to go into management but not at West Ham, if the job became vacant.

“I know Teddy eventually wants to go into management but I don’t know if he wants to fill Sam’s boots,” said Cascarino told talkSPORT [while speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast].

“I think he wanted to go there as a learning curve, do a year in coaching, a couple of days a week working with the strikers.

“I know he has always been ambitious to go and further his career when the time is right, but I don’t know if he would follow Sam, because Sam was the man that brought him in. I don’t see it yet.

“I haven’t had that conversation with him, but I do know he would love to do management at some stage in his career.”
