Harry reveals Bentley discussion

Harry Redknapp has revealed that he had a discussion with David Bentley over his progress and form at Tottenham Hotspur so far. Bentley has endured a difficult start to life at White Hart Lane.

Redknapp said: "I don’t know if he got into a Tottenham mould, where he thought: 'We’re at Tottenham now and we have to play the Tottenham style of football'. Maybe he thought he had to be a bit more entertaining, with a flick or something fancy. The work ethic suffered. I could see he wasn’t doing what he was at Blackburn. He wasn’t working as hard but after having a little chat with him I think he’ll get back to that.

"I told him what I thought of him and his performances, what he can do and what he was doing. He took it on board and has trained really hard, closed people down and won tackles. He’s back to what we saw at Blackburn."
