Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Juande Ramos to Chelsea links

Former Tottenham boss Juande Ramos has been linked with taking over at Chelsea.

Tottenham Hotspur may be winning plaudits for their current progress under Mauricio Pochettino, but the last manager to actually win a trophy with the club was Juande Ramos.

Sadly for him, he was fired months later after an embarrassing start to the season, not helped by Dimitar Berbatov's deadline day departure, where he picked up just two points from eight games and was replaced by Harry Redknapp.

Now he has been linked with a shock return to English football, with no less than Premier League rivals Chelsea.

The Times report that Ramos is being lined up as a potential 'interim' coach if Jose Mourinho is fired, but is not being considered for a permanent role at the club.

The last Chelsea interim boss was Rafa Benitez, who went on to lift the Europa League for the club, even if he failed to win over fans.

The way Ramos left very much soured his reputation in English football - had he left the summer after he won the League Cup he would have been remembered very differently.

He has won a European trophy with Sevilla, and also managed Real Madrid - but he is not necessarily the answer for Chelsea in their current predicament, lying in 16th place in the Premier League.

Tottenham fans have been having fun at their London neighbours expense since hearing the reports, here is a look at how they reacted on Twitter...
