Former Cagliari, Tottenham and Swiss international defender Ramon Vega believes players today are too media-trained and that there aren’t character in the game today compared to his playing days.

Speaking exclusively to The Italian Football Podcast, the former Spurs player highlighted his former teammates at the North London club, Inter legend Nicola Berti as well as Jurgen Klinsmann, as an example of a player who had lots of character.

Vega, who won a League Cup with Spurs together with Nicola Berti during the 1998-1999 season, believes that footballers are a bit dull today.

“It was fun playing with them. Two different characters. One a German who was dry and straight. The other, an Italian, lively, full of life, a nutcase let’s call it.

It was great to play with them. There aren’t players like that anymore today like Berti, who are characters and rebels. Today they are all media-trained, it is santized.

Football should be to entertain also, today football is a bit dull and doesn’t have characters like we did in the 1990s. Today footballers are fully media-trained and know what to say.

“Back then, it was better for the media as footballers said exciting things and you got great interviews.”

Ramon Vega joined Tottenham in January of 1997 for a reported fee of £3.7 million from Cagliari featured 84 times for the North London club across all competitions scoring 8 goals in the process.

Vega also enjoyed spells at Celtic where he won a domestic treble, Watford and Grasshoppers before hanging his boots up following a spell with Creteil in Ligue 2 in France.

Vega also represented Switzerland 23 times scoring the one goal, including featuring for his country in Euro 96 in England.
