To the spud's players that have to starve....a burger.
JUANDE RAMOS has more trouble on his plate — after Spurs stars complained they are STARVING.
The basement boys feel their manager’s strict diet regime has left them feeling lacklustre during matches.
One top player said: “We’re feeling hungry going into games and that can’t be good. We get lots to eat after matches but we want something before as well.”
Angry squad members held a secret summit about the grub snub before the 1-0 home defeat against Hull a fortnight ago.
And several stars have met Ramos individually to express concerns about their eating habits.
Ramos and his Spanish nutritionist Dr Antonio Escribano imposed the measures after arriving at White Hart Lane a year ago.
Escribano — dubbed Dr Baby Food — worked with Ramos at his previous club Seville.
The food guru’s methods include pulping vitamins, minerals, fruit and vegetables and giving players a ‘mulch’ which many compare in texture and taste to baby food.
But he is also strict about how protein, carbohydrate, caffeine, fruit, fish, meat and vegetables are mixed at meal times.
Each Spurs player has been issued with a personal dossier, giving them strict instructions on what and when they can eat.
They are even told in which order to consume certain food groups.
