Tottenham boss Juande Ramos allowed his players to stray from their strict diet regime to celebrate yesterday's Carling Cup final success over Chelsea.

The hard-as-nails boss allowed his stars to break their strict diets for one day and swig champagne.

And he joked: "I have had a drink with them in the dressing-room - even though you cannot tell. It's quite a nice diet and sometimes they are allowed to have a good time.

"Sometimes it lets them eat and drink totally out of control - and yes, that includes champagne."
