Yep we heard it before, but it seems even more final the way it is reported today! See below the list of proposed casualties of the Ramos cull!
Tottenham boss Juande Ramos is preparing for a massive end-of-season clearout and the following players are said to be not needed at White Hart Lane anymore
Anthony Gardner, Ricardo Rocha, Lee Young Pyo, Benoit Assou-Ekotto, Paul Stalteri, Pascal Chimbonda, Paul Robinson, Teemu Tainio and Darren Bent.
“We don’t need many players,” Ramos said. (The Times)
£40m seems to be an accurate sum to be raised by such a large exodus. I guess it’s no surprise that most of those on the list are defensive players, clearly this is a major cause for concern a concern that JR has already addressed with the signings of Woodgate, Hutton and for the future Gunter, in January.
Clearly Ramos wants to start with a clean slate in the hope of achieving the dream of Champions League football and I think it shows the steely determination of a man on a mission and that is just the type of manager Tottenham needs.
