Ex-Spurs boss Ramos wants Premier League return

Juande Ramos has revealed he would jump at the chance to manage in the Premier League again despite his failure at Tottenham.

The Spaniard left White Hart Lane last month after leading Spurs to their worst start to a league season, and has since seen his replacement, Harry Redknapp, revive the club's flagging fortunes.

''I would have liked to spend more time at the club, but I understand what has happened is the unwritten law of football,'' Ramos told The Times.

''Being in the Premier League was a dream come true, a fantasy I had since I started as a manager. Given the right chance, I would love to be back.''

Ramos' exit came just months after Spurs defeated Chelsea in the Carling Cup final, and the former Sevilla coach revealed he expected that trophy to be the first of many.

''In the first few months we managed to win a title,'' he continued. ''I am the first Spanish manager to win a title in the legendary Wembley, which is obviously the happiest moment of my life in England.

''Spurs had not won any in a long time and I honestly thought at that stage it was going to be the first in a line of successes at the club.''

He also indicated he is seeking a swift return to management, and in particular feels he has unfinished business in Europe.

Ramos enjoyed a superb stint at the helm of Sevilla between 2005 and 2007, winning the UEFA Cup twice in succession before leading the Spanish outfit into last season's Champions League prior to his ill-fated move to north London.

''We have to look forward to the next challenge,'' he continued. ''I left Seville in the Champions League to come here and sadly things didn't work out.

''It is now time to enjoy, to find the next place where we can take our methods, which we have shown can be successful.''
