Ramos: I never met Spurs while Sevilla coach

New Tottenham boss Juande Ramos insists he never met with Spurs officials while still with Sevilla earlier in the season.

Chairman Daniel Levy was not at Ramos' unveiling and is unlikely to speak publicly until the club's EGM next month when things could look brighter if Ramos guides them out of the bottom three of the Barclays Premier League.

Levy has been among those criticised after Spurs officials were pictured in the same Sevilla hotel as Ramos on the first week of the season, although the new Spurs boss insisted: "There were some pictures in Sevilla but I can honestly say I didn't meet any one of the Tottenham directors.

"I had an offer in August from three or four teams in pre-season.

"There were a lot of rumours at that particular time and I decided not to take any of those offers back then.

"It was the right time now. Sevilla went through some bad results so I felt I had to take this chance now."
