Lee Young-Pyo has no regrets following his decision to turn down a move away from White Hart Lane in the summer.

The 29-year-old full-back is back in favour following some poor performances from new signing Benoit Assou-Ekotto and Lee says:

‘Of course this season has been a little bit difficult for me but I certainly do not have any regrets. Last summer I had many chances to leave Tottenham but I have never regretted that decision. My choice was to stay here and although I am not always in the team, I am not disappointed that I decided to stay. I will just work hard and hope for my place in the side.’

He said in the matchday programme: ‘I think we have a great manager, great players and everyone – including the staff and supporters – are all together working hard for success. Last season was good for the club but this season could be even better and I really hope we win a trophy. But the most important thing is to do better than last season and achieve more, which I think we can.’

‘I am confident that we can have a great UEFA Cup campaign and also make the top six in the Premiership, we are good enough. And of course we are in the quarter-finals of the Carling Cup. We are strong and we have the players to achieve great things this season.’

  • I wouldnt include yourself in the where strong statement lee. That is one thing you desperately lack, the other is a left foot, strange for a left back

  • He’s better than Assou-Ekotto. At least he’s got some sense of positioning and timing. Anyway we should go after Matty Taylor from Portsmouth – who is a quality left back – and supports the Spurs!!!

  • Left back continues to be a problem position. I thought Essu-Ekotto was improvement on Lee but he sometimes gets into difficulties and had a bad time against that lot up the road. I hope Lee gets a run now.

  • give him a break…..he didn’t played badly in the last 2 games.
    btw, he plays right back and right mid for South Korea, it was Jol who insist him on the left last season.

  • Ekotto got over run in the Derby because Steed was nowhere to be seen, was constantly battling 2 men!! Neither are perfect but still think Ekotto will be the answer!!

  • Was surprised you allowed a bid to eb accepted in the summer because he seemed to impress last season. He made one mistake but was slaughtered for it.

  • Good move.Lee has a much better attitude than ekotto. Although Ekotto has more ability, he sometimes looks as though he simply can’t be bothered. Lee has been first class in the games he has played for us this year. Well done Lee for winning your place back.

  • hope any doubters can re watch the charlton game, agreed greybeard competition is the key. both are able. who wants it more?
