Assou Ekotto admits Tottenham players never gave all for Ramos

Tottenham fullback Benoit Assou Ekotto has revealed the players refused to give their all for former manager Juande Ramos.

The youngster says there's a completely different atmosphere at the club under Harry Redknapp.

He said: "With Juande Ramos the team did not have a feeling for him so after one game, two games, three games we almost subconsciously said: 'We do not have a feeling for you, we will not give the best for you.'

"But with Harry its different. All of the team have a good feeling for him. When you have a problem you can go and speak to him.

"So I don't see us going eight games without a win as we did under Ramos. I think we have a good chance of going to Stoke and winning again. And next week.

"Stoke are a strong team but they are human. Sure we have to be careful because we know they do well against the big clubs. But we will look at the video and study them carefully."
