Ramos on Spurs: I wanted Eto'o - they signed Bent

Dnipro coach Juande Ramos has revealed his transfer requests at Tottenham were ignored.

Ramos says he had no problem with Spurs selling Dimitar Berbatov to Manchester United.

"I didn't have a problem with selling Berbatov, so long as someone came in to replace him," he told the Daily Mail.

"The two strikers that I asked for were Samuel Eto'o and David Villa. But we were left with Darren Bent and Roman Pavlyuchenko.

"We started the league and we couldn't beat anyone; we couldn't score a goal under a rainbow and in the eighth week I'm gone."
