Sevilla coach Ramos to stay put

Sevilla coach Juande Ramos says he will remain at the Spanish club until the end of the season, ending speculation of an imminent move to Tottenham.

When asked whether he would be staying at Sevilla, Ramos said: "Of course, I am here and I don't want to get distracted by speculation."

Ramos had previously said that he rejected a "dizzying offer" from Spurs and would fulfil his Sevilla contract.

Sevilla are in London for Wednesday's Champions League game against Arsenal.

Meanwhile, Ramos told the Daily Mirror: "Today I am the manager of Sevilla and I am only thinking of that but everything is possible.

"One of my challenges as a coach is to work in a foreign country."

He added: "England would be a magnificent destination but I don't have a concrete date. But everyone knows that everything in football is unexpected."


Tottenham slumped to another defeat on Saturday at home to Arsenal. They have won only once in the Premier League this season.

But Sevilla full-back Daniel Alves has suggested that Ramos may not be on his way to Spurs in the short-term, saying he expected him to leave at the end of the season.

"We are confident he will stay for the whole season," Alves told the Daily Telegraph. "We don't fear him leaving. I have got the feeling it will be his last season.

"From the players point of view, he has made history. He has done everything he could.

"If he left they would understand him, it would be deserved."

Meanwhile Jurgen Klinsmann has reportedly been quick to dismiss any stories linking him with the manager's job at White Hart Lane.

Klinsmann is said to be keen only on managing a side playing in the Champions League.
