Zokora happy at Spurs

Ivory Coast international Didier Zokora has played down speculation linking him with a summer move away from Tottenham Hotspur. Quotes attributed to the midfielder last week suggested he was looking to leave White Hart Lane after losing his place in the Spurs team to Wilson Palacios. Zokora has started only two Premier League games since Palacios' arrival at the club in January, but insists he is content in north London. He said: "The people behind the scenes help the players so much, especially those like me who came from overseas without speaking any English. "I've been so well looked after from the first day I arrived. "They make us feel welcome, help us settle in with our families and that is so important because when a player is happy off the pitch it helps him to be happy on it as well."
