New Spurs manager Juande Ramos has revealed that he had to leave Sevilla because of problems behind the scenes.
Ramos resigned last week to take over at Tottenham and was criticised by both the club and also by sections of the Spanish club’s fans for leaving for the money.
However, Ramos has denied that the €7m-a-year contract offered by the Premier League club was not his main motivation for quitting.
“The situation became unsustainable because there are times when a club can trample on its coaches,” he told Radio Marca.
Several clubs were interested in his services during the summer, but hehas revealed that Sevilla kept him from going before the start of the current campaign.
“Sevilla prevented me, not for any other reason,” he added.
Despite walking out of the post at the Sanchez Pizjuan, Ramos admits that it was a very difficult decision to make.
“I left with some sadness after all the years I have been there,” he stated.
However, Ramos denied that claims that a deteriorating relationship with Sevilla president Jose María del Nido was behind his switch to Spurs.
“It was always very good throughout all those years,” he stated.
