Bentley: I haven’t been fully focused on football

David Bentley is looking to get his career back on track after he put in an eye-catching display in Tottenham’s 2-0 win against Everton.

The winger has admitted that outside factors have distracted him, but is now focusing on his football career.

“I enjoyed it,” Bentley said. “It’s been a difficult time since I’ve been here, I’ve encountered every problem in the book and it’s just nice to get my head down now and hopefully concentrate on football.

“I just looked to enjoy myself and give 100 per cent. Sometimes my efforts have been lacking at times because I haven’t been fully focused on football.

“I think I’ve got that right now and against Everton I worked hard and my ability came out. I was happy with it.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. I bet if the club hadn’t been fully focused on paying him, he might not have been so easily distracted.
    I think this is a joke and makes me like him even less.
    He should have not commented on his form since arriving, or said “I’ve been shit”, not hidden behind some generic excuse.
    Still I can see him setting up Crouchy for the winner on Saturday.

  2. He had a tremendous game tonight & reminded everyone why he was once spoken of as the new David Beckham. It was not only his touches & flourishes – it was also his drive, strength & willingness to dig in that impressed.

  3. I think he deserves another chance. He’s shown in the past to be a good player so I’m sure he still has it in him. Give him some more playing time before January and if not, then send him on his way. Try to at least make some use out of what we paid for him. I still believe he could do some good for the Spurs.

  4. Bentley can only try and regain his form of two years ago. He certainly can’t play any worse since his time at Spurs. My worry is Robbie Keane…….he is not the same player as before his “holiday” in Liverpool.

    Fuzzy……Crouch has a groin strain so will he be fit for the Arse.
