'Gio' Dos Santos unhappy at Tottenham

BY foxsports • November 8, 2011

Mexico forward Giovani Dos Santos says he is becoming increasingly frustrated with his lack of opportunities at Tottenham and may leave the English Premier League club when the transfer window opens in January.

A regular for Mexico, Dos Santos starred as the team successfully defended its Gold Cup title against the United States in June.

Those performances followed a successful period on loan at Spanish club Racing Santander during the second half of last season, scoring five goals in 15 matches.

Nonetheless, Dos Santos has failed to break into Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp's starting lineup.

Dos Santos says he wants ''more minutes'' on the pitch and has had ''lots of offers'' to leave.

“As a player, you’ll always want more minutes. I have two years (at Tottenham) and have not had the minutes that I wanted,” said Dos Santos at the end of training with the Mexican national team. “I’m fine. I train every single day and really don’t know what could happen."

He added: “It’s hard to say that I want to go. I went to Racing Santander for six months and played well, then I played at a high level at the Gold Cup and Tottenham didn’t let me leave.

“I don’t understand, but know that offers are out there for me. I’ll have to wait until January.”
