When will footballers just tell the truth?
Sorry to drag him up again but he's really starting to do my nut in!
From Tribal news dated August!!
DAVID BENTLEY...............The former Blackburn player revealed that he struggled for sleep in the days leading up to his move to Spurs.
He added: "People don't realise - or perhaps they do, as everything's dragged out across the media - how it affects your life.
"You have to relocate and make sure the girlfriend's cool. It becomes emotionally draining. Even when the bid was accepted, I couldn't sleep as I was too excited thinking about playing for the club.
"I wasn't even sure Tottenham wanted me! As a player, you can only voice your opinion and say 'I want to go there'.
"I was lucky, because lots of teams were interested, but Spurs were my team. And I wouldn't take "no" for an answer."
From skysports news dated JUNE!!
David Bentley has spelt out his desire to leave Blackburn and play at a higher level.
The 23-year-old has informed Rovers he wants to go and he now hopes to secure a transfer to a club playing in the UEFA Champions League.
"I made it clear to the club what I wanted to do," Bentley told Sky Sports News.
"My situation is I want to move on, I want to be playing Champions League football.

The reason it's dragged through the press is because no Champions League team came in for you!
Yes you did well for us and we know we are a feeder team (apparently), but all our (so called) big fish who have moved to a big pond have drowned....
Why can footballers not just tell the truth! I want more money!! I'm a Yid? (not, "i was lucky, because lots of teams were interested, but spurs were my team. And I wouldn't take "no" for an answer.")
I really do not care just be honest! Keep your mouth shut and play football.
P.S. If you do not keep your mouth shut you will end up the same way!
Shearer, Duff, Dunn, Sherwood, Le Saux, Wilcox, Sutton, Bellamy, Neill, Souness and perhaps even Hughes???
To name but a few!
