Bent fancies Gareth Bale making the return to Tottenham

Former Tottenham Hotspur ace Darren Bent believes Gareth Bale has a good chance of heading to the Premier League with Spurs this summer. The Wales international has endured a torrid spell with Real Madrid in the past couple of seasons and his future remains uncertain with manager Zinedine Zidane returning to the helm.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Bent said that Bale should have do difficulty in returning to the Premier League with Spurs, considering the club are moving in the right direction after reaching the final of last season’s Champions League, he told: “I can see him coming back [to England] but where is the difficulty. You look at Spurs and he knows the club, they're going in the right direction, a new stadium, brilliant manager, young team. He'll go to where suits him best and he'll have a number of options. When you look at the teams in the Premier League, it comes down to Tottenham and Manchester United.”

Pochettino wants to make Tottenham the best club in the world

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has said that he has no plans to leave the north London club and is motivated to take the team to the next level. The Argentine had recently presented doubts over his future by stating that he could leave Spurs after the Champions League final but he has now dismissed the prospect of doing so.

Speaking to TalkSPORT, Pochettino revealed that Spurs have some of the best facilities in the world and he is keen on taking the club to the top of the ladder, he said: “Tottenham, for me, is the best club in the world. When we talk about facilities - this training ground, a stadium that is the best in the world - there is no better club. We need to make that step. Of course, we realise we can continue in this process, we can put Tottenham with the best teams in the world.”

Stephan Lichtsteiner admits he could head through the Arsenal exit door

Arsenal defender Stephan Lichtsteiner has admitted that he could head through the club’s exit door this summer. The Switzerland international has just one month remaining on his existing deal with the Gunners and he appears disinterested over an extension amid the reduced gametime over the course of his debut campaign with the club.

Speaking to Evening Standard, Lichtsteiner acknowledged that he cannot assure his stay at the north London club next term, considering the proceedings during the backend of the season, he said: “I see it being quite difficult to stay but we are going to see what happens. I don’t know anything. The only important thing is the Europa League Final now. I really want to win this cup and bring this club back to the top level, back to the Champions League and winning important titles.”

Who Next for Troubled Scotland?

The Scottish National Football Team has never looked short of top-class talent but has consistently struggled to live up to their billing. A succession of poor managerial appointments, poorer performances and a general lack of cohesion between both has left the Scots desperate for some stability and form going into Euro 2020 qualifiers.

The recent sacking of the much-maligned Alex McLeish is an opportunity for the SFA to start again with yet another clean slate. How can they leave their failings in the past and make a genuine challenge to compete in Europe’s premier international competition?

Chris Hughton urges Brighton players to roll their sleeves up

Brighton & Hove Albion manager Chris Hughton has urged the players to roll their sleeves up as they face a relegation battle in their hands. The Seagulls have been in a woeful run of form during the backend of the season and the recent home defeat at the hands of Cardiff City has put them within two points off the relegation zone.

Speaking after the Bluebirds’ defeat, Hughton indicated that the team must find a way of turning around the lean run of form, given they have quality within their ranks to do so, he said: “We’ve always had a battle on our hands, we’re a young team in this division and there’s going to be highs and lows. At this moment it’s a low, particularly because of the last two defeats at home, but we have no choice but to get on with it, roll our sleeves up and show the quality that we’ve got. We need to get back to what we do best and look to get results in this series of games. “It’s still very much in our own hands and that’s the way we have to look at it. It’s been a huge disappointment for us, particularly at home, but we have to find a way around this.”

Danny Rose Admits Worry Surrounding Spurs’ Alarming Decline

Danny Rose claims that the dip in form experienced by Tottenham over the last few weeks is quite alarming as the end of the season approaches. Spurs have been on the losing side in three out of the last four league matches.

As a result, it has significantly worsened the hopes of finishing in the top four with the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United making up a lot of ground of late. Even Chelsea have been picking up points with a reasonable consistency. Tottenham appeared to be in a title race not too long ago, but they are now facing a major fight just to remain in the top four.
