Jermaine Jenas admits Tottenham boss Juande Ramos is beginning to feel the strain of the club's poor start to the season.
Spurs currently sit rock-bottom of the Premier League table, with just two points taken from their six fixtures so far, their worst start to a league campaign in 53 years.
A 2-0 defeat at Portsmouth on Sunday provided the latest blot on Ramos' copybook, with the away support targeting their Spanish boss with a rowdy chorus of: "You don't know what you're doing."
The noises coming out of White Hart Lane remain positive despite the slump, but Jenas has revealed that the pressure may be beginning to take its toll on Spurs' under-fire coach.
"The manager gets very angry at certain things, but he also has a very level head," the England international told the Evening Standard.
"The players know that we have not been up to our usual standards.
"The confidence is never going to be sky-high when you are not winning games, and one or two players are maybe lacking a bit of that confidence."
