Ramos fears gap is widening

Juande Ramos fears Tottenham and Chelsea are moving in "different directions" but has backed his club's structure.
When Spurs defeated their London rivals in the Carling Cup in February there were hopes of closing the gap with the heavyweights of the Premier League - but there have been contrasting summers in both camps.
"Chelsea have the ability to sign absolutely top-echelon stars from anywhere around the world, pick the cream of the crop, to try and win every trophy. We are kind of in a different league to that," said Ramos. "Maybe it's a case of two clubs moving in slightly different directions."
Ramos has nevertheless been pleased with the improvement in the quality of his squad after letting seven first-team players leave, which has offers an assessment of the players brought to the club by sporting director Damien Comolli.
The likes of Younes Kaboul and Kevin-Prince Boateng struggling last season brought Comolli's influence in the spotlight, and Robbie Keane and Dimitar Berbatov's situation has put pressure on the Frenchman to use his scouting network to find suitable replacements.
Comolli finds players for Ramos - such as Roman Pavlyuchenko, who is understood to have agreed a long-term deal - and a consensus is made over transfers along with chairman Daniel Levy.
Ramos, speaking of his work with Comolli, said: "We have an excellent relationship, the contact is daily.
"It was the same story at Sevilla. "We had a sporting director, a director of football if you like, who was responsible for transfers and signings.
"Tottenham is a similar situation."
