Roman Pavlyuchenko wonders if boss Redknapp is 'mocking' him

Roman Pavlyuchenko has made it clear he wants to quit Tottenham Hotspur after reportedly accusing boss Harry Redknapp of "mocking" him.

Pavlyuchenko joined Spurs in the summer of 2008 from Spartak Moscow for £13.8 million but has struggled for regular first-team football at White Hart Lane, with the striker is behind Jermain Defoe, Robbie Keane and Peter Crouch in the battle for places up front.

The Russian has publicly declared his desire to leave North London during the January transfer window on numerous occasions, and he is certainly doing all he can to secure a switch elsewhere, with the disgruntled 28-year-old launching a fresh blast in the direction of his current boss.

Speaking to the Russian press, Pavlyuchenko said: "You cannot even imagine how tired I am of sitting on the bench.

"For me it would be funny if it was not so painful. I have a feeling that our manager is mocking me."

Pavlyuchenko feels Redknapp has a grudge against him and bitterly recalled another nightmare at Old Trafford when he was left out in the cold for their Carling Cup defeat to Manchester United.

He striker added: "On the eve of the match he asked me to come to see him.

"He said, 'Tomorrow will be a chance to show your best in front of 75,000 spectators. We need to use it'.

"However, he used it by keeping me on the bench for 90 minutes."

The Mirror suggests that Zenit St Petersburg, Lokomotiv Moscow, Spartak Moscow and Sporting Lisbon are all interested in Pavlyuchenko.
