‘Like a very well run company’ – Former Spurs boss slams Tottenham ambition
By Guy Giles
Former Tottenham boss Juande Ramos has blasted the club’s ambition and believes that Spurs haven’t won a trophy recently because of the way Daniel Levy runs a tight ship.
Ramos was the last man to lead Spurs to a major trophy with victory in the 2008 Carling Cup final against Chelsea, and it will soon be 10 years for the club without any silverware.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, Ramos said: “The club has been like a very well run company. Whenever they produce a star player, they sell him. In terms of winning trophies, the ambition and the priorities have been elsewhere.”
When asked about the Harry Kane transfer saga, Ramos replied: “We will see what happens with Kane but in the past the decision has been to sell. It happened with Luka Modric, with Gareth Bale, Dimitar Berbatov and with Robbie Keane. It’s what they have done up until now.”
Speaking ahead of Spurs’ clash with Real Madrid in the Champions League, Ramos expressed his admiration for Kane, and believes the star striker would be a success anywhere in the world.

“If you can score goals in England then you can score goals in any league. There is no doubting Kane’s quality,” he said.
