Spurs slam Hughes reports

03 October 2008 11:25
Tottenham Hotspur have reacted angrily to reports suggesting they are keen to make Mark Hughes their next manager. It had been claimed that Spurs officials had contacted the Manchester City boss to see if he was interested in replacing the under-pressure Juande Ramos. However, a statement on the club's official website read: "The club largely refrains from making statements of this nature, unless absolutely necessary in order to set the record straight in light of wholly inaccurate reporting. "An article on the back page of this morning's Sun newspaper reports that the club has made an offer to Mark Hughes to take over as manager during the forthcoming international break. "This story is completely untrue and without foundation and the matter is being discussed with the publication." The Sun had said Spurs were keen to offer Hughes a £20million, five-year deal. Ramos has come under fire in the wake of his side's poor start to the season. The north London side are bottom of the Premier League table after failing to win any of their first six games of the season.
