Wright: Tottenham needs a bully in their team

Wright told the Sun: “Firstly, I would call Juande Ramos into my office and tell him we were definitely NOT going to sack him.

“I would give him until the end of the season — whatever happened.

“I would then give Ramos enough money to sign who HE wanted in January — with Gennaro Gattuso, Gianluca Zambrotta and Emile Heskey the top three players on my list.

“If Ramos knew he was definitely staying, and that he would be allowed to bring in fresh players when the transfer window reopens, then all the fans would have no choice but to get behind him.

“The current squad, even though some may have a problem with Ramos, would know it was pointless rocking the boat as the gaffer was going nowhere.

“At this stage of the season there is no point bringing in a new boss, because he would not be able to make any new signings.

“It would be important to have a face-to-face chat with the team’s under-performing stars.”

The former Arsenal ace also said that Spurs are missing a leader when Ledley King is not around.

He said: “They have no leaders when Ledley King is not around, with the defender’s occasional appearances a strange situation in itself.

“If I was in the White Hart Lane dressing room, I would be looking for players who were ready to scream their heads off.

“I would expect them to encourage their team-mates, to criticise their team-mates and, most of all, to fight alongside their team-mates.

Basically, I would want a bully in that team but there is none there.”
