Sevilla striker Fredi Kanoute has hit out at former boss Martin Jol, claiming his Tottenham training sessions were 'boring'.
Kanoute has flourished with the Liga outfit and the 30-year-old believes coach Juande Ramos is a major reason behind his success.
The former West Ham ace feels Spurs' training sessions were a major problem, of the opinion that Jol threw his weight around while also failing to stimulate his players.
Ramos was recently tipped to succeed Jol at White Hart Lane and Kanoute feels the Spanish tactician would be a success in English football.
"Ramos and Jol are two serious coaches, but the Spanish man is closer to the players," Kanoute told the News of the World.
"You can speak to him without problems but Jol is a more complicated character.
"I've done many training sessions with Jol shouting and I believe this is simply for him to demonstrate he's the boss.
"But I prefer a type of coach like Ramos. He develops entertaining training sessions but during my time there with Jol, I was bored.
"For me the rumours surrounding the two men are no surprise. Ramos would be able to work for Tottenham or any other Premier League club."
