“He is never happy really”


Roman Pavlyuchenko - Tottenham Hotspur News

Roman Pavlyuchenko’s future at Tottenham is still up in the air after Harry Redknapp admitted that the players future is in his own hands.

Pav scored a cracking free-kick in the 1-0 win against Rubin Kazan in midweek and has made it clear that he will seek a transfer if he continues to be omitted from the Spurs league side.

The Russian is behind Adebayor, Defoe and Van der Vaart in the pecking order at the Lane and wants regular first-team football.

Redknapp told a press conference: “I have good competition up front. Defoe scored a good goal last week and Adebayor has been in good form.

“It’s difficult with Pav. He is a good lad. He gets on with it and if he works hard and puts the effort in home and away he will be a top player, there is no doubt about that.

“When he is on his game he is fantastic player. He has great ability, great power in his shooting.

“But I can only pick the people I think deserve to play at the end of the day. Adebayor has been excellent leading the line.”

“He is never happy really. I don’t think I can really keep him happy,” Redknapp added.

“I haven’t spoke to him about his future. He has to just come in and work hard every day.

“It’s up to him what he does in January. If he felt he wanted to move in January then…”


Have something to tell us about this article?


    • not the brightest comment, is it? So, we keep Pav to play up front with Ade -ok. We sell Vdv and Defoe and replace with Rossi and Diamo! So you are putting those new buys on the bench? Idiot!

  1. __ He has a quality that needs to be nurtured, and it needs to be remembered that Adebayor could throw a wobbly at any given moment. The great Martin Chivers was useless in his first season but Billy Nick worked on him and he became the most feared striker in the old 1st division. Pav needs game time and a loving arm around his shoulders

  2. U made him that way never gave him a chance how much did he play last season compared to the other 3 useless gits and still scored more than all 3 never heard u moan a them 3 prats u brought last season!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    This season nothing ,played league and u moan because he missed a pen he had a reasonable game till u took sandro and vdv after that never got a kick ,and u didnt say about the absolute rubbish display by defoe who gave him no help,

  3. spur 1950 what the fuck you on about .if he wanted to play regular first team football .he needs to put in more effort .i suggest you attend agame sometime old man.
