WTPS: Rebrov woe?

Posted on 19 September 2001  - 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).

The Express suggests that Sergei Rebrov is ready to seek talks with Glenn in order to clarify his future at the Lane.

Sergei has started only two games so far this season and is reported to be unhappy over his lack of action.

His agent Sandor Vargas said: "Things are not good and Sergei is not very happy because he is not playing.

"All he wants to do is play for Spurs and he wants to score more goals. But he cannot do that if he is not playing. He was hoping to play against Chelsea but was only on the bench."

The Express also reports on the Dean Richards front, saying that Spurs will meet the players' contractual obligations.

The 27-year-old has a 'percentage sell-on clause' in his contract and would be entitled to a slice of any fee since he was recruited by Saints on a free transfer from Wolves.

Richards is quoted as saying: "I am aware Spurs have increased their offer and the clubs are very close. Saints want £8.2m but I have a sell-on clause which takes it to £10m.

"That is something I'll have to think about. It is a difficult and frustrating time for me but the whole matter is totally out of my hands..

The Mirror reports that Stephen Carr has flown to Colorado to have his knee assessed by Dr Richard Steadman, the specialist credited with the recoveries of Alan Shearer, Jamie Redknapp and Ronaldo from serious injuries.

Carr is seeking the all-clear to resume full training next week.

The same report in the Mirror says Glenn is trying to secure the signature of young Danish goalkeeper Kevin Ellegaard from FC Copenhagen for a fee of £250,000.

The 19-year-old featured for our reserve side against Dagenham and Redbridge in pre-season, while the keeper is currently gaining experience on loan at Danish first division side Farum.

Meanwhile Glenn is urging players to take up refereeing when they finally hang up their boots because they will be aware when a playing is cheating.

"I don't like the word cheating," said Glenn. "I think players are trying to work their corner and gain an advantage, and some people are interpreting that as cheating.

"If the money is good enough, I would like to see ex-players put on a fast tract to get the qualifications.

"An ex-player knows when a player is supposedly cheating, and I think that's the big difference between having played or not played the game.

"The doors have got to be opened."
