“Does Redknapp believe in me? Now I don’t think so.”


Roman Pavlyuchenko - Tottenham Hotspur News

Roman Pavlyuchenko has once again stated his desire to leave Tottenham Hotspur in the next transfer window.

The fourth choice striker at Spurs is worried his place in Russia’s squad for Euro 2012 could be in jeopardy if he does not get regular first-team football.

The 29-year-old has his heart set on a return to Russia and Anzhi Makhachkala.

“I have to do something in the transfer period. We’re ahead of the European Championship. If I don’t change (my club) then Euro 2012 will be played without me,” he told football-express.com.

“I was fighting and fighting but it was useless. Does Redknapp believe in me? Now I don’t think so.

“I do the training as good as the others. I do everything with 100 per cent effort.

“I don’t cry and I don’t say that everybody is bad but I’m a good footballer. If I score in each game then I can play. But it’s not a reality to score in each game. That’s all.

“Will I ask the club to sell me in December? Yes, it’s 100 per cent.

“I’d rather go back to Russia. If I sign to Anzhi or not – we shouldn’t go too far. Maybe I’ll have only one possibility and that will be Anzhi and nothing else.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. That's fair. He's not exactly lit the Premiership on fire but he's served adequately. He's a good footballer and tends to get on with it more than other strikers have in the past. Not surprising that he wasn't his best on the few occasions he's played this season for lack of playing time and match sharpness but that's football. Looking at the Spurs midfield the squad really needs a striker that can match the overall consistent quality that comes. Best of luck for Pav in January I suppose.

  2. Hes a cry baby, he expects to play when hes not doing it. Davspurs speaks better English than him, hes never mastered the lingo.
    Speaks like hes on Hi Di Hi.
    One thing we dont need in London are Russkies.
    My Dad said just before the Berlin Wall came down "If Russia ever becomes a so called dxemocracy ever again then the first thing that'll happen will be all the rats coming back out of the sewers and thats what has happened. Its a crying shame that a club like Chelsea with all its tradition let a Russian take over who bought his way into the club. Ask yourself one thing, how did a 40 year old suddenly get not just mega rich but beyond rich? When you allow yourself to have that done to you then you lose all reason to be. Take Arsenal who we dont like, they have my respect much more than Chelsea (even though they did bribe Islington Council for the Emirates).

    • Get your own opinion don't use your Dad's, muppet. Oh wow Pav's English is basic so what it's at a decent enough standard you just don't hear him. I'm sure you are mutlilingual. People, stop putting your political views down. He single handedly took Spurs to the Carling cup final against Man U scoring in every round up to the final but I'm sure you hating this as you know, he was Russian. Oh and his other important goals (Young Boys probably the most important getting Redknapp out of that hole).

  3. The fact that this guy can't speak to the press without a translator says it all. He just cannot be bothered and won't put any effort into settling here.
