Bentley: No laughing matter

09 October 2008 08:24
Tottenham Hotspur winger David Bentley has admitted that his side have become a laughing stock after making a dismal start to the new Premier League season. Spurs have so far earned just two points from seven games and summer signing Bentley is aware that things need to change in the very near future. He told The Sun: "I know people are having a laugh at the fact we are bottom of the league at the moment, but it's up to everyone at the club to stop the jokes. "We're not happy with what has been happening. You cannot hide from the situation, but what we need are a team of leaders who take responsibility. We have to grow as people. "We have more than enough good players at Tottenham to get us out of this situation and I give my word that we will." Of his relationship with under-pressure Spurs head coach Juande Ramos, Bentley added: "I'm fully behind him, 100 per cent. "I still love being at Spurs and I don't regret joining the club for one second. "I know I haven't been at my best, but I haven't become a bad player in a fortnight. The manager believes in me." Bentley, 24, has scored once in eight appearances for the north London club since his big-money move from Blackburn Rovers.
