According to this source, under-fire boss Juande Ramos should try this trio to help the club steer clear of relegation, but is this former Arsenal legend correct?
Firstly, I would call Juande Ramos into my office and tell him we were definitely NOT going to sack him.
I would give him until the end of the season — whatever happened.
I would then give Ramos enough money to sign who HE wanted in January — with Gennaro Gattuso, Gianluca Zambrotta and Emile Heskey the top three players on my list.
If Ramos knew he was definitely staying, and that he would be allowed to bring in fresh players when the transfer window reopens, then all the fans would have no choice but to get behind him. (Ian Wright, The Sun)
So is Wright Wright Wright right? Well these three may well have been on his wish-list, but Heskey apart, it could be very tricky to clinch these signings. After all, Zambrotta only just joined AC Milan in the summer and, given their decent start to the season, I don’t see the full back leaving. Gattuso is in a similar boat, also at Milan (for almost a decade now), however he could be up for the Premier League challenge.
As for Emile Heskey, I really don’t know how this link keeps being made. Whilst Heskey may have had a good game for England against Croatia, he is still in my view a very average footballer and one who has nothing to offer Spurs that they don’t already possess.
Do Tottenham fans have any interest in any of these three joining? Who would they recommend Ramos opts for in January?
