Bassong wants to leave Spurs


Sebastien Bassong

Sebastien Bassong has publically revealed that he wants to leave Tottenham Hotspur in the summer.

As we revealed last week the Spurs defender handed in a transfer request after becoming frustrated with the lack of first team opportunities.

“I know football’s rules and I know that it’s up to the manager,” Bassong said. “If he likes someone else more than me, I totally get it. But the fact is that after last season, and what we achieved together, I couldn’t even imagine that I would be in this situation.

“I haven’t made some huge mistake on the pitch or anything. It’s just happened. For a bit, I felt lost because I haven’t faced this situation before in my career. I feel that I have gone backwards, like I have gone from heaven to hell.”

He added: “I am a guy who simply has to play. I would never just sit there and take the money. I am reaching an age where, if I don’t play week in, week out, and if I don’t feel real trust in me, then I can’t stay, no matter which club it is. This is the situation at Tottenham. I have to try to find a way out because I have to try to play. The only thing I want is to play.”
