O'Hara: Ramos gave me Spurs break

Tottenham midfielder Jamie O'Hara admits his first team chance has come directly from the arrival of coach Juande Ramos this season.

The 21-year-old from Kent revealed: "I'm relishing life under the gaffer. I was on loan when he first came in but I've just embraced it ever since.

"He has come in with his new ways, it's a new regime and I'm just revelling in it. I love the two-touch football, it's the way I like to play.

"I appreciate the gaffer giving me the opportunity because playing in the first-team is the best feeling there is."

O'Hara also told Hotspur magazine he benefited from being sent to Millwall on loan to gain valuable experience.

"The first couple of weeks were tough in terms of adapting to that style of football and getting my match sharpness back," he said.

"I wasn't 100 per cent match fit when I went there but once that sharpness returned I felt great. The fans got behind me and it was a great place to go and play.

"I had a rough spell to start and then a high after that. There was a change of manager and I felt I impressed him early on, scored a couple of goals and started feeling good about my game."
