Tottenham fires manager Juande Ramos

Tottenham fires manager Juande Ramos

Tottenham fired head coach Juande Ramos late Saturday for the club's worst start to a season and immediately targeted Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp.
Beleaguered chairman Daniel Levy, who had been facing fans' protests on Sunday, acted quickly to fill the void by turning to Redknapp, who hauled back Portsmouth from the bring of relegation to FA Cup glory.
"The club has requested permission to hold discussions with Harry Redknapp and Portsmouth FC has reluctantly agreed," Spurs said.
The announcements came exactly a year after Martin Jol was dumped and on the eve of the London club's English Premier League match against Bolton.
Spurs was lodged at the bottom of the league after taking just two points from its opening eight matches this season.
Sporting director Daniel Comolli, who has been blamed for his poor command of Tottenham's transfer activity, also left, and first team coaches Marcos Alvarez and Gus Poyet were also fired.
Clive Allen and Alex Inglethorpe will take charge for Sunday's match at White Hart Lane.
