Earlier in the week we asked your opinion on Paulinho after his first season in English football and while the response was mixed, most of you weren’t convinced by the player. For those who were positive about the Brazilian’s contribution and for those who believe he needs another season you would have been pleased to read that the midfielder intends to stay at the club.
Earlier in the campaign, Paulinho suggested he was unhappy about squad rotation but when speaking to FourFourTwo, he insisted there was no problem.
“I don’t have any problem. If you take a look, I was on the field in more than half of the games if you consider the Europa League and the cups,” he said.
“There’s no big issue with this, but a footballer always wants to be playing, never resting. We Brazilians are like this.”
The player was then asked if he regretted his move,
“Absolutely not. I know how to handle my career and it’ll take more than just one bad moment before I reconsider my options.
“We have all got responsibilities at Tottenham and we are ready to go through this.”
Talks of a £25m plus move to Chelsea always seemed a little fanciful but this is a clearer indication of Paulinho’s intentions for 2014-15. Whether the new Head Coach wants the Brazilian in the squad is another issue.
