George: Sergei is happy

Posted on 15 December 2000  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

George Graham has insisted striker Sergei Rebrov is far from unhappy at Spurs. <P class=MsoNormal>The &pound&#59;11m forward scored only five goals since his arrival in the summer but boss George is adamant that the Ukrainian is not about to ask for a transfer. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;Sergei has been injured and I think he&rsquo&#59;s been frustrated because of his injury,&rdquo&#59; George told <B>Sky Sports</B>. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;He did play a few games with his thigh strain and he wasn&rsquo&#59;t producing his best. But as far as I&rsquo&#59;m concerned I&rsquo&#59;m happy with the boy and he&rsquo&#59;s very happy.&rdquo&#59; <P class=MsoNormal>George was also at pains to point out that Rebrov has so far failed to hit the heights he is capable of in front of goal because of the unique nature of Premiership football. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;I don&rsquo&#59;t people give enough credence to the problems that foreign players have settling into English football,&rdquo&#59; he added. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;Some of the Arsenal boys took some time to settle into the English game, the intensity of it and the pace of the game. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;So obviously Sergei is going through that just now, but I think we are going to see a lot more of him and see him scoring lots of goals.&rdquo&#59; <P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
