Exclusive – No hard feelings over Tottenham exit, insists Dawson, after making Hull move

first_imgMichael Dawson insists he harbours no ill-feeling towards Mauricio Pochettino over his Tottenham departure.The defender was told he was not part of the Argentine’s plans following his appointment at White Hart Lane in the summer.Overlooked for Spurs’ first two games of the season, Dawson has now completed a switch to Hull, and the 30-year-old insists he is happy to move on after almost a decade at the north London club.“I loved every minute of it there but I want to play football and the opportunities were going to be less this year so when the chance to move north to Hull came it was one I couldn’t resist,” he said, speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“There are no hard feelings. Football is all about opinions. He [Pochettino] wanted to move things on, I wasn’t in his plans, and that is football.“Now I’m at Hull, I’ve got to come and perform like I did at Spurs and pay back the faith they have showed in me.”Dawson is the third Tottenham player to move to the KC Stadium in recent times after Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore.He is relishing linking up with the duo again and is delighted to be working under Steve Bruce, a top centre-back during his playing days.“He was a centre-half and what he did with his playing career and managerial career as well was a massive factor in getting me to the football club,” he said.last_img read more
