Sherwood lost his position as Tottenham head coach in May, despite signing an 18-month contract at White Hart Lane in December 2013.

He looked set to take the West Brom job but failed to agree terms at the Hawthorns, although the 45-year-old remains keen to return to management, if the right opportunity comes along.

“I think it’s a very good club. I had two very long meetings with them and they offered me the position there as manager,” Sherwood told The Fantasy Football Club.

“We carried on the discussions, personal terms and a little bit about who they may be bringing in. In the end, we decided it wasn’t going to be right.

“In the game I have always been told, ‘if in doubt, leave it out’ and there was too much doubt there for me. I decided, at this stage, the West Brom job wasn’t the right one for me.”

Sherwood, who was in charge of Spurs on a caretaker and then permanent basis following the departure of Andre Villas-Boas, remains keen to manage again, although he admitted there is heavy competition for jobs.

“There was nothing about and there are a lot of good managers looking for work at the moment and I am certainly one of them,” he added.

“Nothing has cropped up at the moment which I feel is right for me.”
