Tottenham's new secret weapon: Baby food!

New Tottenham boss Juande Ramos is ready to force BABY FOOD down his players' throats after games to improve their recovery!

Antonio Escribano is in talks about joining Spurs' medical staff and bringing his magic mush with him.

Boss Ramos made a special request to bring in the University of Seville's professor to boost the fitness of Dimitar Berbatov & Co.

Escribano, 56, said: "I will be there this weekend and we will talk to see how to arrange things. For me this is not a transfer - I will just be a medical consultant after the English club asked me.

"It's difficult for me to be there permanently because I am a professor in the university and I also work with five clubs in Spain. But if we can reach agreement it's no problem."

Escribano, who worked with Ramos at Seville, is known as "doctor baby food" in Spain because of his liquidised concoction of natural ingredients he gives players to aid their recovery after matches.

He added: "The famous 'baby food' is just a nutritional help at the end of matches and at half-time.

"It's good because it makes the recovery of the player much better.

"They have called me from England for my work and the one who called me is evidently Juande.

"I'm not annoyed that they know me as the man of the baby food. In reality it's just food.

"It was a Seville player that told me one day 'this is what my baby eats' and people started calling it baby food. But it's really a drink."
