Newcastle United fullback Jose Enrique has heaped praise on fellow Spaniard Juande Ramos and his work at Tottenham this season.

Enrique told the Evening Chronicle: "There are a lot of good managers in Spain and, despite his success, Ramos is only an example of the good managers we have.

"He is similar to Rafa Benitez, who achieved a lot with Valencia.

"What Rafa did there was very good, and it is the same so far for Ramos.

"At Seville and Tottenham he has won six cups in two years.

"For me, that is the sign of a very good manager."
