Ramos Out, Redknapp In

Matt MattersonContributor IOctober 25, 2008

Tottenham Hotspur have announced that the club has parted ways with Juande Ramos and sporting director Damien Comolli with immediate effect.  First team coaches Gus Poyet and Marcos Alvarez have also been sacked.

The news comes two days after Spurs slumped to a 2-0 defeat away to Udinese in the UEFA Cup, with the club still looking for a first Premier League win of the season. 

Many observers felt that Comolli would be on his way out of White Hart Lane before head coach Ramos, with widespread criticism of Tottenham's transfer activity over the summer.  However, under fire chairman Daniel Levy has seen fit to have a substantial clear out in a bid to reverse Spurs' fortunes.

In charge for Sunday's game against Bolton will be Clive Allen and Alex Inglethorpe. However, Spurs have acted swiftly, agreeing to a £5 million compensation deal with Portsmouth to bring Harry Redknapp back to London.

Redknapp takes charge of a Tottenham squad that have endured the clubs worst ever start to a league season, with Spurs propping up the Premier League table with two points from eight games.
