Tottenham Hotspur manager Juande Ramos has reportedly been given until mid-November to turn the club's dismal form around or face the sack.
The Spanish coach has presided over the north London club's worst start to a season since 1912, with Spurs currently bottom of the Premier League table after failing to win any of their seven opening games.
Ramos has only been in the White Hart Lane hot-seat for less than 12 months but reports claim he has been given just a handful of games to safe his job.
Meanwhile, striker Darren Bent claims the players remain united behind the former Sevilla coach despite their disastrous start to the campaign.
The former Charlton Athletic striker is currently Spurs' top-scorer having netted three goals in nine appearances.
He said: "Everyone is still upbeat.
"There are things going around that there is unrest in the dressing room, but everyone is behind the manager and we are all behind each other.
"I've said on numerous occasions, I'm sure we'll be okay and we'll put it right sooner or later.
"It's disappointing, obviously, but we have to take positives and in some games we've been playing well enough to get something from games."
