Jermaine Jenas feels he has nothing to prove as he looks to break back into the England squad.
Spurs fans will disagree with that however and feel that he has plenty to prove to the White Hart Lane faithful after some poor displays last season.
Many had tipped and hoped that Jenas would leave Spurs this summer, but he still appears to be in Harry Redknapp’s plans.
With a midfield packed with the quality of Aaron Lennon, Luka Modric, Niko Kranjcar, Sandro, Wilson Palacios and Tom Huddlestone – is there really room for regular first-team football for Jenas?
He told The Sun: “I don’t think I have anything to prove but I do feel as if I have missed a season in my career because I didn’t play many games at all.
“Obviously, I was disappointed to miss out on the World Cup squad.
“But this is another campaign and I must do all I can to make sure I don’t miss out again.
“I’d like to think there is room in the England squad for someone like me who can pass the ball. I’m mobile too.
“And there’s definitely more goals to come from me – that’s what gets you really noticed.”
