This was his David Bentley’s Sky Sports interview, if you been watching it throughout the day you will have probably seen it:
David Bentley admits he remains uncertain as to whether he will still be at Tottenham next season.
The 25-year-old winger has struggled to make the desired impact at White Hart Lane since making a big-money move from Blackburn in 2008.
First-team opportunities have been sporadic, with Bentley unable to hold down a regular role.
That proved to be the case again last season, with Spurs boss Harry Redknapp awarding him just 12 Premier League outings.
A lack of action has led to speculation regarding his future, with some suggesting he would be wise to move on.
Bentley, though, insists he remains committed to the Tottenham cause and will be doing his utmost during pre-season to force his way into the fold.
“Hopefully I will get fit and as strong as possible and look to have another good season,” he told Sky Sports News.
“Whether I get out on the pitch, you never know. You can be as fit as possible but not play any football, so we will see what happens.”
On the possibility of making a move elsewhere, Bentley added: “We will have to see, you never know. I’m at Tottenham at the minute, but let’s see what happens.”
Bentley is keen to remain in north London, with Tottenham preparing to enter the Uefa Champions League next season.
The opportunity to appear in Europe’s premier club competition certainly appeals to Bentley, but he accepts that competition for places remains fierce.
He is currently battling with England international Aaron Lennon for a right-wing berth and knows he may be forced to settle for a place on the bench at times.
“I think when you are at a top club that’s what happens,” he said.
“The Champions League is great for the club and great for the fans and hopefully it will be great for me. But you never know and we will have to see what is going to happen.”
Judging by his comments here it seems to me as though he would like to stay and would be happy with next seasons squad rotation system. I for one have grown to like Bentley more and more last season, he done a good job when Lennon was injured and I believe he brings good team spirit in the dressing room. Next season we will need a squad of talent and not just our first 11. Lennon isn’t going to be able to play midweek and then again on a saturday all season long and who better to have fill in on the right than Bentley?
What do you guys think? do you like the idea of him staying or do you want shot of him?
