Robinson's rift with Spurs boss Ramos exposed

Tottenham teenager Tomas Pekhart has lifted the lid on coach Juande Ramos' rift with goalkeeper Paul Robinson.

he 18-year-old Czech Republic striker has blamed Robinson's refusal to warm-up before the Carling Cup semi-final at Arsenal on 9 January for the former England No1's extended spell on the bench.

Talking to the Czech newspaper Sport, Pekhart - who says he is dreaming of making his Spurs debut against his old club Slavia Prague in the UEFA Cup tomorrow - said: "Robinson gives the impression of being a very angry man. When Ramos put him on the bench for the first time, he did not even go to the warm-up which made the coach even more angry.

"Ramos is very strict. No one has dared to challenge him."

But Pekhart claimed that fellow Czech, Radek Cerny, is thriving as the first-choice keeper.

He said: "Radek is enjoying every game. The guys have been saying he has made some unbelievable saves."
