Simon sets the record straight

Posted on 10 July 2003  - 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).

Simon Davies has set the record straight on his future at Spurs insisting he's NOT unhappy, NOT looking to move and sees perfectly eye-to-eye with manager Glenn Hoddle.

Our Welsh midfielder has been the subject of numerous stories linking him with various clubs all summer.

But he responded at Spurs Lodge this afternoon: "It's laughable really and I don't know where these stories have come from.

"Someone told me the other day that I'd had a meeting with the manager and told him that I wanted to leave but it's just people trying to stir things up.

"I've never asked to leave. I signed a five-year contract last year! If I wanted to leave I would have just let it run out and I would have had a year left now.

"I signed a five-year deal, I've four left and I'm happy here.

"I've never had a problem with the manager either, not at all. In fact, since the manager has been here, he's played me more often than not and that's what you want as a player.

"I only missed out once on being involved last season and that when I was suspended. That says it all really. I'm a club where I'm playing the majority of the games and that's what you want as a player.

"Obviously things didn't go as well as we wanted them to last season and we were unhappy as a club. That's why we were all disappointed."
