In an interview with Fifa.com Giovani dos Santos has revealed how frustrating his time at Spurs has been since his arrival in 2008. Having been signed by Juande Ramos and playing regularly, he has hardly figured under Harry Redknapp and is currently on loan at Racing Santander.
He told Fifa.Com: “This season has been more frustrating because I thought I would get more playing time. I came back from the World Cup, played during pre-season and performed very well in several games, but yet I wasn’t given an opportunity.”
He went on to insist there had been no personal issues with Redknapp and that he now concentrates on fulfilling his own potential.

Redknapp predicts super spending from City.
Speaking before tonight’s game with Manchester City Harry Redknapp has warned the football world that City’s spending will not stop until they win the Premier League and Champions League.
Speaking to Sky Sports Redknapp said: “The man from Abu Dhabi has got so much money, I mean; it isn’t like money to him is it? They tell me they have got one or two players signed already who’ll blow your brains out. They aren’t going to stop until they win the championship and even the Champions League, are they?”
Redknapp admitted that there is little he, or most of the other managers in the league can do to stop City dominating in the transfer market.
