Darren Bent has apologised to Tottenham Hotspur chairman for criticising him on Twitter.

Bent’s account on the social networking site has now been removed, but on Thursday evening comments attributed to him blasted the Spurs chief.

A statement on the official Spurs site read: “I appreciate that transfers are seldom straightforward and are often complex. However, after a long period of waiting following my withdrawal from the plane to China, I had become incredibly frustrated by the time these things take and I posted inappropriate comments on my Twitter site.

“I allowed my emotions to get in the way of my better judgement. I regret my actions and did not intend to offend Daniel Levy or anyone with the nature or the content of my posting. ”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. All done with then.
    What about than numpty Bruce banging on about Bent not being treated humanely?
    He should have kept his mouth shut.
    It’s all very tedious for everyone but it all comes down to one simple fact: Spurs value Bent at a certain amount, if Sunderland want him they will have to pay that amount. It is therefore them that are messing about.
    I don’t deny that we are notorious for dragging these things out, but usually as the buying club.
    All in all we need to go back to basics and only allow players to talk to other clubs once a fee has been agreed. If Bent had been pulled from the plane due to the fact that the clubs had an agreement, then he would be a mackem right now no?

  2. My sympathies are with Bent. If it was the first time Levy bungled his way through these things it would be different but it’s farce after farce

  3. levy is a twat as much as i love spurs and think we are moving in the right direction, just don’t rate levy since pretty much he sacked jol! And after selling keane and berbi and leaving us fucked! Seems like a tight wod really and i feel sorry for bent, i think its right that he’s gone but he has give his all to this club with out moaning about being sub week in and out, good luck benty
