Fredi Kanoute has played down a rift between himself and Jacques Santini.Tottenham striker Fredi Kanoute has played down a rift between himself and Jacques Santini and even reserved praise for the manager.
It had been thought the Mali international hit-man was upset with the former France coach for forcing him out of Lyon four years ago.
However, Kanoute has stated the two get on well and that Santini has even been a massive plus for Spurs following his summer arrival.
"There are no problems between myself and the coach, we get on fine," explained Kanoute. "In fact I think that he has been excellent.
"We're better organised this season under him. We look a much better side and we are more united as a team.
"Everything is going well. Santini has ensured we have made a lot of progress and everybody can see we have taken huge steps."
