Tottenham deny Mark Hughes approach
Friday 03 October 2008
Tottenham have rejected claims that they have offered Manchester City boss Mark Hughes the manager's job at White Hart Lane.
Spurs boss Juande Ramos has been under pressure after Spurs made a poor start to the season.
They currently languish at the bottom of the Premier League and media reports claim that Spurs had contacted Hughes' advisors to offer the former Manchester United striker Ramos' job.
Spurs, however, released a statement on the club's official website denying they had approached Hughes.
The statement read: "The club largely refrains from making statements of this nature unless absolutely necessary in order to set the record straight in light of wholly inaccurate reporting.
"This story is completely untrue and without foundation and the matter is being discussed with the publication."
