Ginola blames Spurs disastrous start on ''politics''

Former fans' favourite David Ginola has offered his services to Tottenham Hotspur as they bid to bounce back from their worst ever start to a Premier League campaign and warned that ''politics'' are damaging the club .

Ginola, 41, wowed fans in north London with his attacking flair between 1997 and 2000 and believes he can bring some of his own footballing philosophy to a squad who look wracked by doubt and are rooted to the foot of the table.

Expectations at the start of the season were significantly higher than that as Spurs spent big to replace key trio Dimitar Berbatov, Robbie Keane and Jermain Defoe - but while he insists change is needed, Ginola does not think the club should be in a rush to sack manager Juande Ramos.

Instead, Ginola wants to see a change of ethos from the boardroom to the training ground and would happily accept the chance to initiate such a revolution.

''I'm frustrated to see the clubs I like struggling so much. Spurs are really in trouble and it's disappointing,'' said Ginola at the launch of Braun's new online reality show Smooth Side Challenge.

''The first to be blamed will be the manager, of course, but when he first arrived he was the best in the world. Now he seems to be called the worst. In a few months he has not become the worst manager in the world.

''We all want to see changes but I don't know if changing the manager would be a solution.

''All the politics of the club must change. They need better management - not just on the pitch, but in the offices. Spurs, somewhere, are not making the right decisions.

''I would love to help them. I would love to be back at White Hart Lane, to bring back a bit of spirit, a bit of knowledge about the game. A team is a family - if you forget that you will not be able to have success.

''I worked at Tottenham as a player and my relationship with the fans and the people at the club was great. I know if I go back I could bring something different - a new vision about how to react to each other, to make sure every player enjoys training and enjoys going out to play on a Saturday.

''The process is hard but it is something I always did when I played at Spurs. I would love to do that again.''

Meanwhile, Spurs defender Michael Dawson has been charged with improper conduct by the Football Association and could face an increased ban due to his reaction to the red card he received against Stoke on Sunday.

He has until 6pm today to answer the charge and will find out his fate when the case is heard by the regulatory commission on Thursday.
