Tottenham Hotspur striker Darren Bent has dismissed reports of a rift in the White Hart Lane dressing room after their disastrous start to the Premier League season.
Spurs have just managed to pick up two points from their seven games in the league this season and sit rock bottom of the Premiership, with former Charlton Athletic player Bent insisting that Tottenham need to start winning sooner rather than later or face getting cut adrift in footballs top-flight.
Reports have suggested recently that all is not well behind the scenes at the North London club, but 24-year-old England International Bent is adamant that is not the case at Tottenham.
Bent said: “Everyone is still upbeat. There are things going around that there is unrest in the dressing room but everyone is behind the manager, and we are all behind each other.
“I've said on numerous occasions, I'm sure we'll be okay and we'll put it right sooner or later.
“It's disappointing, obviously, but we have to take positives and in some games we've been playing well enough to get something from games.
“When you lose to Hull with goals like Geovanni's, there's nothing much you can do about that. It just seems to happen to us but I'm sure we'll put it right eventually. We know what we have to do.”
However, with Tottenham due to face Premier League debutantes Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium after the International break, Bent is hopeful a win can kick-start their season as their following fixtures see them face North London rivals Arsenal at the Emirates and then welcome Liverpool to White Hart Lane a few days later, with the Spurs front-man insisting that Tottenham are capable of beating anyone.
“One win won't get us out of it, we need to start winning games so that there isn't a gap where you need to win two or three games just to have a chance,” Bent added
“We've got a difficult game against Stoke but if we prepare like we know we can do, and play like we did against Hull in periods, we know we can beat anyone.”
