Is he the answer?
Other than José Mourinho being sacked well over a month ago, Spurs hiring of Juande Ramos from Sevilla is the number two story on the coaching end this season. When news of his hiring broke, everyone at White Hart Lane cheered. Well everyone except Paul Robinson whose days might be numbered in goal with the team.
His personality and style both in human quality and knowing scheme is going to be of influence. “I am anxious to meet the players and get started… it is a privilege to be the manager at Tottenham.” For the former Sevilla coach this was a “dream come true” as one of his desires as a coach was to practice his craft in England.
Spurs fans, please do not expect to be in the Champions League. Although him alongside a man as knowledgeable as a Gustavo Poyet will lead them to great things- just not this year. Well maybe I shouldn’t be so absolute. Juande Ramos might have shortened his trip to the UEFA Cup finals in Manchester.
They might be one of the teams that consensus “winner” Bayern Munich will have to look at a little closer. For Spurs fans, the news was like hooking up with some vedette or model that was certainly unattainable, but she then confesses her undying love for you.
Yes, romantic as it sounds; a match made in heaven. Well let’s see what goes on after he does take over. Based on his track record, he will be able to take the side where Jol left them (prior to the beginning of the season. But the reality of all of this is that he will take over a side lacking in confidence and decimated by the injury bug. This will truly be a test for Ramos from the coaching perspective, and any success will make him the top candidate for the Spain job come 2014.
