Crouch has no Spurs regrets

The striker joined Stoke on the deadline day of the summer transfer

window and will now face his former club on Sunday at the Britannia

Stadium. Spurs are flying high this season after 10 wins in 11

Premier League matches and so it would be understandable if Crouch

had some regrets about leaving. But having watched manager Harry

Redknapp sign Emmanuel Adebayor on loan, the 30-year-old knew his

chances would be limited in North London. Crouch said in The Sun:

“No regrets at all. There is a real buzz around here. I love the

feeling of being part of something special which is what is going

on at Stoke. “There’s something special going on at Spurs too, but

they brought in Emmanuel Adebayor and I knew my chances would be

limited and I’d be watching from the bench. As good as they are to

watch, I’m not one for that! “I want to play and be at a place

where I feel wanted. The boss was dying to get me here and I felt

the club was going in the right direction.”
