Former boss to take on managerless Spurs in Europe

Managerless Tottenham will come up against former boss Juande Ramos after being drawn to face Ukrainian outfit Dnipro in the last 32 of the Europa League.

Swansea have been tasked with overcoming Serie A title hopefuls Napoli.

Ramos was in charge of Spurs for just under a year from October 27, 2007 before being sacked with the club bottom of the Premier League in the 2008-09 season having taken just two points from their opening eight matches.

He will therefore be intent on gaining a measure of revenge over his former side, who announced the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas this morning despite the Portuguese overseeing a 100% record in Europe this season.
