Former Manchester United assistant manager Carlos Queiroz is interested in taking on the vacant manager's post at Tottenham Hotspur.

Sir Alex Ferguson's former right-hand man admitted he would like to make a working return to the Premier League, where he had great success with Manchester United, and is keen to put his name down for the job at White Hart Lane.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy dismissed Andre Villas-Boas on Monday after a humiliating 5-0 defeat to Liverpool at home and are on the lookout for a successor.

Former player Tim Sherwood has taken temporary charge and does hope to get the job permanently, though defeat to West Ham United at White Hart Lane in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday, after leading 1-0 going into the last ten minutes, will not have helped.

Queiroz is currently in charge of the Iranian national team, but could not deny that a return to the Premier League with a team such as Spurs would be an inviting prospect for him.

"Absolutely. Tottenham is a club I really appreciate a lot and I have great admiration," he told the BBC World Service when asked if he was interested.

Ajax manager Frank de Boer was tipped to be Spurs' first choice to take up the hotseat, but the Dutchman ruled himself out of the running earlier this week.
