Bilic plays down Spurs talk

Slaven Bilic has insisted Tottenham's Croatian contingent are fully behind under-fire coach Juande Ramos - and claims he has no interest in succeeding the Spaniard.

Bilic, who manages Spurs duo Luka Modric and Vedran Corluka at international level, would be one of the names in the frame should Ramos pay the price for leading the north London club to their worst ever league start.

But he told BBC Radio Five Live: "I've been linked with many clubs in England and all I can say is that it is flattering. But I have my job with Croatia and that's all I'm concentrating on."

Both Modric and Corluka were taken to White Hart Lane by Ramos this summer, and Bilic added: "The Tottenham crisis has affected them but they are behind the manager and I can't see a problem with them on the pitch."

Bilic, the former West Ham and Everton defender, is confident Spurs' predicament will only prove to be a temporary blip.

"It's hard to believe but a lot of good teams have been in the same position,"

"When something goes wrong, and then you get injures, red cards and bad luck, it's frustrating.

"I know the situation they are but I'm sure it is going to get better. It's a massive club and they are going to come back."
