Jonathan Woodgate is excited about working with Tottenham coach Juande Ramos.
Ramos has led the revival at Spurs in the last three months, starting with changing diets and fitness regimes, and the initial results were enough to attract Woodgate from Middlesbrough.
"He looks the part, doesn't he?" said Woodgate. "When he talks to the players he is good. I'm really enjoying it.
"The manager, the players, you can see what they are trying to do here - to build something. It was like at Leeds. You see the new players come in and you're excited.
"The fans are good but it's mainly the manager. He's won silverware, he knows what he's doing, he's a proper manager."
Comparable to the likes of Wenger and Jose Mourinho?
"He's already that anyway," the centre-back added. "He's won cups in Spain and with what he's done with Sevilla in the last two years he's done ever so well."
