Damien Comolli: “My time at Tottenham went exceptionally well”
Did it? Did it really?
This morning, Gus Poyet has admitted that Tottenham were right to sack him and Juande Ramos, going as far as to give “full credit to Harry”. Former director of football Damien Comolli, however, does not hold the same opinion of Tottenham’s start to 2008/09:
“My time at Tottenham went exceptionally well.
“I took a lot of pleasure in what I achieved.
“I think Tottenham was rated as the 11th biggest club in the world — it was extraordinary.
“I had a lot of success. I did a lot of good for the team and left a club in great shape.
“The current results are showing what I did for Tottenham. The team is great and young.”
Granted, Comolli helped the club win silverware and achieved a top five finish in 2006/07, but can the man who forced Martin Jol out of the door really make these claims? Did he really do a lot of good for the team? We’re not convinced.
