Zokora happy with Real Madrid link

But the Ivory Coast international insists he is happy at White Hart Lane.

Zokora has been linked with a move to join up with former boss Juande Ramos at Real Madrid.

He said: “It’s fantastic to be associated with Real Madrid as they are one of the biggest club sides in the world — show me theplayer who would not want to be linked with them.

“But I’m very happy here at Spurs and in England. I love England and the English people. My team is doing much better under Harry Redknapp and I am enjoying every minute of it.

“For me, this is a win-win situation. I cannot lose. I love playing for Spurs, but to be associated with Real Madrid is, of course, very flattering.”

He added: “I was upset when Juande Ramos left because he gave me a chance in English football and for that I’ll be forever grateful.

“I was nervous about what would happen next, but as soon as Harry came here things have just got better and better.

“Harry has a very English way whereas Ramos had a Spanish way of dealing with things.

“Both of them are very good, but we are at an English club so maybe the English way is the correct one.”
