Spurs pick Spaniard as new boss

New Spurs manager Juande Ramos

Tottenham bosses have picked Spanish footie manager Juande Ramos as the man to take charge of the club.

Ramos takes over from Martin Jol as the man in charge at White Hart Lane, and he had loads of success with his old club in Spain, Sevilla.

They won the Uefa Cup in each of the last two seasons and finished third in Spain's Primera Liga last season.

Ramos said: "It is a squad any coach would be excited to work with. There is the potential to achieve great things."

Spurs have been linked with Ramos since the start of the season, and with the club performing badly under Jol, the club's bosses decided to change managers.

The club are third from bottom in the Premier League and lost Jol's final game in charge earlier this week, 2-1 to Getafe in the Uefa Cup.

Spurs play in the Premier League on Sunday against Blackburn, but Ramos will not be in charge then. His first game will be in the Carling Cup on Wednesday against Blackpool.
