Tottenham director Sir Keith Mills has admitted the sacking of Martin Jol should have been handled better, while maintaining new boss Juande Ramos will not be burdened by end-of-season targets.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has been heavily criticised for approaching Ramos while Jol was still in his post, and for telling the Dutchman Tottenham had to qualify for the Champions League.

And Mills admitted: "Of course it could have been handled better but when you are dealing with change in any organisation it is complex and often painful. I´m sure everyone regrets the media coverage we have had for the last couple of months but you just do not make an omelette without breaking a few eggs. We needed to move on as a club, that´s now behind us."
