Harry: Bentley spat not serious

12 December 2009 10:37
Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has played down reports of a major bust-up with midfielder David Bentley. Redknapp was reported to have exchanged angry words with Bentley after a midweek friendly with Grays Athletic, but the Spurs boss has played down the seriousness of the row. He told the club's official website: "It wasn't a real bust-up, nothing that would compare with what we are talking about at the other clubs this week. "I wasn't happy with his performance in the first half of a game and that was it. There was no blazing row. I just felt he could have done better than he was doing. "It was very mild. I was supposed to have said I will sell him in January, that's absolute rubbish. "David is here and has trained hard this week, he is available for the (weekend) game."
