Bassong open to Spurs exit


Sebastien Bassong - Tottenham Hotspur News

Spurs defender Sebastien Bassong would be open to the possibility of a move to QPR.

Bassong has already hinted a couple of times since his failed summer move across London that he would still be interested in a switch.  When we have a fully fit defence he finds himself behind the likes of Michael Dawson, Ledley King, Younes Kaboul and William Gallas in the central defensive pecking order.

With our current defensive woes we only have Kaboul and Bassong as out fit centre halves, which just highlights how vulnerable we are defensively once we pick up a couple of knocks.

Bassong could make his first Premier League start of the season against Blackburn this weekend, in comparison he played 20 times in the 2009-10 season.

“Has not playing often been difficult? Yes, of course. I’m human – I have feelings and emotions,” Bassong told the press.

“But no matter what happens, I have to take it and move on. Yes, it’s been difficult – my situation has been difficult, I think everyone knows that.

“I think maybe it wasn’t that fair, but that’s football and life is not fair sometimes, so what do you want me to do? I just keep playing and smiling. It’s okay.”

“I’m interested in everything,” Bassong added.

“I’m not going to say ‘No, I’m not interested in anyone who’s coming for me’.

“First of all, I want to play for Spurs. When I’m playing here, I’m happy. Then, if I’m not playing enough, then we’re going to think about something else.

“But for now, I played last night, I’ve come back fine – I’m happy.

“When you get a chance to play, you feel more confident. When the manager gives you a chance to play, no matter which games it is, you feel better.

“You can express yourself and show people you’re still here and that the manager can count on you. I think that’s what I’m doing and I think I’m doing well.”
