Mr Sheringham, who previously played for Manchester United, West Ham and Tottenham Hotspur, is the current manager of Stevenage, who are playing Exeter today.
The match has been switched from Saturday afternoon to 12:15pm on Sunday and broadcasted live on Sky Sports.
Sheringham, who was appointed at Stevenage last May, admitted the pressure that comes from managing a club is much more intense than playing.
“Everything rests on my shoulders. I like the fact I’m there to be shot at. A lot of people have asked me why I’ve put myself in this position, but football people, that’s just what we do.
“I was given the talent as a kid to have football in my bones, and I’ve still got football in my bones. I want to pass on my knowledge and hopefully get a team that’s performing well in this division.”
Paul Tisdale, the manager of Exeter City, said although the club welcoming the European Champions League winner, the players’ focus will be on the game.
He commented: “Obviously with the manager that is at Stevenage there will be a fair bit of interest created in the match because of that, but our job is simple.”
“We have to continue our home form, which has been good. We have to get the best out of our game, regardless of opposition managers, TV cameras etc.”
“I think we will be ready to do that. I can’t see the players’ focus being taken away from the performance because the TV cameras are here.
“I don’t see that as an issue at all. There is a change of routine of course, with it being a 12.15pm kick-off on Sunday, but to be honest none of those things should have any influence at all in the way we play and the way we approach the game.”
Although Stevenage, which currently sit 20th in League Two, have not won a game since the first week in September, Sheringham sees the match against Exeter City as an opportunity to get back on track.
