Enigma begins break out

For years soccer fans have been told that Jermaine Jenas has all of the skills to be a superstar at both the club and international levels.But since Juande Ramos took over at Spurs, Jenas has started to show that his play might be living up to his potential .

During the recently completed Carling Cup semi-final against Spurs’ hated rival Arsenal, Jenas might have been the best player on the field. According to The Sun’s player rankings for the second leg of the tie, Jenas was ranked at a 9 out of 10 and the Man of the Match.

Jenas started his career Nottingham Forest during the 2001-2002, and then he moved to Newcastle United before the start of the 2002-2003 for 5 million pounds. Jenas started to show his true skills and he was named PFA Young Player of the Year during his first season in the white and black of Newcastle.

Jenas then moved to the Spurs before the close of the Aug. 2005 transfer window for 7 million pounds, where he was a stalwart for former manager Martin Jol, but under the Ramos, Jenas has shown great improvement and his performances during the Carling Cup semi-finals could only be the tip of the iceberg.
