Ace Plays Down Talk Of Tottenham Transfer

By on July 30, 2011

Ibrahim Afellay has refuted claims that he is on his way to Tottenham and insists he remains fully focused on Barcelona.

However, the out-of-favour Dutchman wants as much playing time as possible paving the way for a possible Nou Camp exit.

The baby faced winger only arrived in January and despite making 16 appearances for the club, the majority were made from the bench. Tottenham have been linked with a move in recent weeks and when asked if the speculation was true, he told AS:

“Look, if there is anything that is clear it’s that rumours are part of football and we must learn to live with them, but now I’m just focused on Barcelona.

“I’m aware (of the reports) because I read the information arriving from England. People call you and say they have seen such a thing.

“It’s perfect. I feel happy. On a sporting level, I hope to express my potential,” he added.

“(Playing more) is my intention, of course. I want to play as much as possible.”
