Spurs‘must back­Ramos’

The Jewish Chronicle - - Sport - BYDANNYCARO

Daniel Wynne, chair­man of the Tot­ten­ham Hot­spur Sup­port­ers’ Trust, be­lieves that the top-flight strug­glers should stick with Juande Ramos for a lit­tle longer.

Ramos was brought in to re­place Martin Jol by chair­man Daniel Levy and his board last Oc­to­ber. But de­spite winning the Car­ling Cup in his first sea­son, Spurs lie rooted to the foot of the Premier League with no wins from their first seven games.

“The sup­port­ers feel anger and dis­ap­point­ment,” said Wynne. “It’s not a po­si­tion we’re used to be­ing in and every­one at the club needs to take col­lec­tive re­spon­si­bil­ity.

“It would be counter-in­tu­itive to make changes now. I think we should give him [Ramos] at least a year. The board has backed the man­ager and every­one needs to get be­hind the team.”

Levy and Ramos have overseen whole­sale changes at Spurs over the past few months, with the club sell­ing their three best strik­ers – Dim­i­tar Ber­ba­tov, Rob­bie Keane and Jer­main De­foe.

Wynne said: “The Di­rec­tor of Foot­ball is ul­ti­mately re­spon­si­ble for bring­ing play­ers in but once they are at the club, it is the play­ers who are em­ployed to do a job when they cross the white line.”

Wynne is hope­ful that Spurs’ for­tunes will im­prove over the com­ing weeks. The North Lon­don derby against Arse­nal on Oc­to­ber 29 co­in­cides with Ramos’ one-year an­niver­sary. Wynne said: “It would be great to beat Arse­nal, but I hope we clinch a cou­ple of wins be­fore that. Hull beat them so why can’t we?”
