Sevilla coach Manolo Jimenez has taken a swipe at predecessor Juande Ramos over his man-management ahead of his controversial move to Tottenham.

"There are things that you don't know and stuff you will not find out from me," said Jimenez this week. "But this team is going to come together, will go forward together, I am convinced of that."

DiarioSport says Jimenez's comments this week were a blast for Ramos over the way he isolated new summer arrivals Tom de Mul, Morgan de Sanctis, Khalid Boulahrouz and Javier Chevanton - and in the process drove team morale to rock bottom.
