Zokora plays down Madrid link

Published Add your comment

Tottenham midfielder Didier Zokora has dismissed reports he is to join former Spurs boss Juande Ramos at Real Madrid in January.

Ramos has reportedly given the Bernabeu board a wish-list of players he would like to buy in next month's transfer window, and his praise of Zokora has sparked rumours of a reunion.

"I love it at Spurs at the moment," Zokora told "I signed a new contract not long ago and Spurs are doing well with Harry (Redknapp)."

He added: "You would need to ask a club official (about any interest) but I am fine at Tottenham.

"Real are one of the biggest teams in the world, but there are only links because Ramos is there.

"He was always linked with Sevilla players when he was here."

The Ivory Coast international added: "I have never hidden my interest in playing in La Liga.

"But I am in the biggest league in the world, so it will be hard for me to find something better elsewhere."

Ramos said of the 27-year-old: "From the very first day at Spurs I was interested in Zokora because he always understood the game plan and I liked his discipline,"
