Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas appears to have made a drastic U-turn regarding centre half Michael Dawson.
The Portuguese boss is convinced Dawson will 'come good' for Spurs despite attempting to offload him in the summer to Mark Hughes' Queens Park Rangers. He'll come good: Michael Dawson appears to be in Andre Villas-Boas' plans after all The defender was named club captain over the summer after the early retirement of Ledley King, but looked set to leave White hart Lane in a surprising ?9million move to Loftus Road.
In the end the 28-year-old rejected the move to west London after failing to agree terms with Hughes' side.With Younes Kaboul looking at a four month layoff through injury, Dawson - who has not yet made the bench for Spurs this season - is now fourth choice behind William Gallas, Jan Vertonghen and Steven Caulker. I've changed my mind: Andre Villas-Boas (right) tried to offload Dawson to QPR in the summer But Villas-Boas said he and Dawson 'have chatted' about the former Nottingham Forest trainee's future at the club.'There is extreme competition for that central defence position.'Younes’ operation will take him out for three to four months and it is up to Michael to compete.'I’m sure he will come good. He is an extremely good professional and a club captain. He is looking forward to getting back into the team.'
