Spurs Ace Blasts Club

Giovani Dos Santos is unhappy that Tottenham have failed to secure his move away from White Hart Lane.

Giovani Dos Santos is unhappy that Tottenham have failed to secure his move away from White Hart Lane.

The Mexican international has only played 20 times for Spurs since his surprising move to White Hart Lane from Barcelona back in 2008. Sevilla had agreed a deal for Dos Santos but only for Harry Redknapp to change his mind on the sale.

“To be honest I already felt at another club, Sevilla, and we had already completed more than 50% of negotiations,” the 22-year-old told Sport.

“Almost everything had been agreed but with half an hour to go Spurs changed their minds, something I found very odd.

“I was very surprised Harry Redknapp changed his mind, given that in the three years I’ve been with Tottenham he has not used me or had confidence in me.

“I hope this time he is honest and tells the truth when I talk to him about where he would like me to play.

“Both myself and my agent have been left disappointed, sad and angry at the way Tottenham have acted and after such a long time without having any confidence in me I am now going to get my chance, which seems strange.

“Even so, I mean to take this opportunity out of respect to the Tottenham fans and also because of the professional I am.”

Dos Santos has been included in Spurs boss Redknapp’s 25-man squad which has been submitted to the Premier League for the first half of the season.

    I have been a long standing admirer of the footballing skills of Dos Santos, however there have been reasons why he was loaned out.
    I hope that he now gets the opportunity to show us that what he does for Mexico he can do for Spurs.
    By the way I wouldn’t call a player who has ony played for Spurs 20 times in 3 years “A Spurs Ace”.

    Please refrain from call Dos Santos a Spurs ace because he isnt and if you could call someone that after a handful of games over a three year period you must be on uppers. It’s as if your’e trying to gain brownie points by doing so. The guy is lazy which is perhaps a trait. Where he first plied his trade was in Spain where the pace is a lot slower than in the EPL and I suspect that is also the case in the International games he has played in.

    A stupid headline matching the lack of honesty in the player’s statement. Only when his ability matches his ego will he stand a chance of being called an “ace”.

    Ray you are an idiot. I’m not Mexican nor I’m I a fan of their NT team but have you seen him play with them? He was out there busting his ass in the Copa America and during the first half of yesterdays game before Barrera and Guardado came in to help.

    Graeme3 you are just going by what Droopy the dog(harry) said. “Harry Redknapp, his manager at Spurs, has grown frustrated with the 22 year old’s attitude claiming “if he could pass a nightclub as well as he can pass a ball he would be all right”. He is probably a racist. I can’t wait until he gets sacked so this young Mexican can get the playing time he deserves.
