Roman Pavlyuchenko has issued a statement saying that any thoughts of leaving Tottenham are now a distant memory as he is more than happy at the club.
Prior to February, Pavlyuchenko had looked set to leave the club, seemingly out of favour with Harry Redknapp and unsettled with his lack of first-team action.
But he has battled his way into the team again, having moved ahead of Peter Crouch in the pecking order, and is now very happy with his role at Tottenham.
“When the team wins and I am constantly playing, the relations cannot be anything but good. Now I feel the manager’s trust and do my best not to let him down.
“I have dropped all my previous ideas about leaving Spurs in the summer and I am concentrated on one thought only – what we need to do to finish fourth.”
Pavlyuchenko has played a major role in the consecutive victories over Arsenal and Chelsea and accused the latter of over-confidence as Spurs impressed.
“During the whole game against Chelsea, it looked like us who were favourites for the title.
“I hadn’t expected that we would be so much stronger than them. Many Chelsea players were too confident of victory.
“I noticed during the warm-up that they looked too relaxed, while we were set for a serious battle.
“It was a successful game for us, and had we converted just half of our chances, we’d have won 6-1.”
