It says a lot about David Bentley’s Spurs career that his most positive performance from a Tottenham fans perspective has come in a Blackburn shirt. Bentley was part of the squad that defeated Arsenal in the FA Cup last weekend and the player has hopefully made an early impact on his loan club.
Speaking after the game, the winger suggested that he didn’t regret his move to Tottenham but he did state that it had been a ‘mistake’.
“Sometimes you make decisions, I’m just a young man who’s made a mistake in making that decision to move,” Bentley said
“But it’s not a regret, it’s a decision I made and I wanted. It just didn’t work out.
“It was down to four or five things, a few things. It just didn’t work out and I don’t think it was anything to do with football.”
Speaking about the transfer fee Bentley added: “Someone was willing to pay that fee for me. I never said I was worth that because I wasn’t worth that.”
It’s very early days back at his former club and positive starts to loan spells haven’t developed in the past but hopefully the player can continue to impress and seal a permanent deal back to Ewood Park.
