Paul Robinson's Tottenham future has been thrown into doubt after he was dropped for the Carling Cup semi-final clash with Arsenal.

The England international has endured a testing time over the past 12 months, with a series of high-profile mistakes for club and country.

Robinson was axed by former national team boss Steve McClaren for the crucial Euro 2008 qualifier against Croatia, with Scott Carson preferred for the 3-2 defeat at Wembley.

Now Juande Ramos has elected to drop the beleaguered Robinson, with Radek Cerny preferred for the 1-1 first leg draw at Emirates Stadium.

And the Spaniard insists that Robinson should not expect to be recalled for the Premier League clash against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.


"We haven't decided yet if he will play on Saturday," said the Spurs head coach.

"He is a good goalkeeper which he has demonstrated with his career so far, we all know what a good goalkeeper he is.

"There are 24-25 players in the squad and they all have to play at some point and make the most of the minutes they have on the pitch.

"All of the players are important, all are considered and I choose who I think is best for each match. Only 11 can play."
