Bentley keen to make amends at Blackburn Rovers

Lancashire Telegraph: David Bentley David Bentley

DAVID Bentley has apologised to Blackburn Rovers fans for the manner in which he exited the club five years ago – admitting he didn’t know what he had until he’d lost it.

The Spurs loanee made his Rovers return as a second half substitute in Saturday’s FA Cup win at Arsenal and is desperate to repay the club for giving him “the best times” of his career so far.

Ahead of tonight’s crucial Championship trip to Hull City, Bentley, right, admits ‘in hindsight’ quitting Rovers for Spurs in 2008 was a mistake but insists he did it solely for “footballing reasons”.

He also insists he regrets the way he behaved ahead of the £15million move, when he publicly stated his desire to leave, but believes he has since matured as a person.

He said: “I apologise to the Blackburn fans for the way I left and went about it all. I was young and naïve and maybe those decisions I made were the wrong decisions.

“I apologise because I loved being here and I thank the club for all they did for me, hopefully I can repay them now.

“I was a young man and made a mistake in moving. It was a decision I wanted at the time.

“You can’t act like that. I am not PR driven, I don’t have anyone looking after me telling me what to say, and I made mistakes along the way.

“When I finish I will able to say I did it my way. I would rather that than just spoon feed people lies.

“What you see is what you get and people don’t like that. Some would rather me show an image of being the perfect man but that isn’t the case.”

Bentley made more than 100 league appearances for Rovers between 2005 and 2008, helping the club into Europe, gained international recognition and won the player of the year award at Ewood.

Since moving to White Hart Lane Bentley’s career has stalled, with the wideman spending time on loan at Birmingham City, West Ham and Russian outfit FC Rostov.

“Rovers were the best years of my career because of the humble nature of the place, it was being part of a family. I didn’t realise how good it was until I left,” he said.

“It is nice to be back. Like it has been for me, it has been a difficult time for the club.

“This club’s foundations have always been on its morals and its history. It is a good place with good people and the club always needs to keep that.

“The last couple of years it has probably lost its heart and soul but with the manager and staff now it seems the club may be on an upward curl again.

“I could have stayed at Blackburn but I was trying to be ambitious. I was trying to drive my career forward, I didn’t really want to leave because I had it so nice and so good.”

Bentley has arrived at Ewood on loan until the end of the season, with Rovers expected to make attempts to make the move permanent in the summer, as the 28-year-old bids to restart his career.

He said: “Sometimes people don’t like my personality. Sometimes when you have a smile on your face, people think you are not working hard or taking things seriously. That is not the case.

“My decision to join Spurs was a footballing one, it just did not happen for me. I was a bit of a naughty boy at times.

“Maybe I was a bit cheeky at times. There were three or four instances that will get mentioned. The car crash incident, the water over Harry Redknapp – mistakes.

“Sometimes you get judged on a perception that was completely wrong.”

Most of our top players do move unfortunately that has been the nature of Blackburn Rovers for many years. If one or two of the younger generation carry on improving they will leave also. Fingers crossed you can find some of the old form though and push us towards those playoffs with 3 points tonight. Everything does feel on the up at the moment and long may it continue. Also a win at Millwall would be great so we can all go down to the new wembley!!!! BARMY ARMY

Spot on DB, i think what we tend to forget as fans at times is ultimately footballers what a chance for winning trophies, play on a bigger stage, prove to themselves and others that they are able to play at levels above. We cannot really get upset when player leave, we are a small club. Prime example is Phil Jones, Blackburn lad and supporter, gives his home club 1 and a half season and leaves. Loyalty to your self and your career is more important than loyalty to the club.

I think David Bentley is a great signing for us. Not only has he something to prove but he can also be dose of reality to the youngsters who are coming through at Rovers. If he can guide them with his experience of what happenned when he moved to Tottenham and how it has affected his carrer. In my opinion, bentley moved too early and this may help to keep the likes of Kean and Hanley for a season or two longer.

football player moves to bigger club for more money......pebble lands on beach!

those who bear a grudge against bentley need to remember when we were poaching the likes of shearer, flowers and kenna from saints and sutty from norwich.....also ask if someone comes along waving a pig fat pay-cheque to themselves and the promise of the riches of croesus - how would they react?

if bentley is fit, got his head screwed on right - then he could terrorise full backs for us - jordan rhodes has scored a sackful with very little service, his goals to shots ratio must be among the best in the 92 clubs.....imagine how many he could get if bentley can do what we all saw in his great stay for us first time round - welcome back bentley - - no hard feelings from this particular rover!!!!

refreshing to see quotes untouched by the PR filter. i would echo the thoughts of most on here and say that it's purely about the future. bentley has an opportunity here to get back what he feels he's lost, so hopefully he'll get stuck into that. good luck to him.
i must admit to having not ill-feeling whatsoever when he left. it's always disappointing to lose your good players, but apart from a couple of fleeting seasons, it has always happened to clubs like ours.
i think the recent seasons have arguably brought that even closer to the fore. all we really need is to see things being run as well as possible and the club progressing on and off the field as much as possible. as a middle tier club, i think that's probably enough.
a trip or two to wembley would be lovely too!

Just because he hasn't been in Spurs superb squad does not mean he is a poor player all of a sudden. He may well be another roque, but he had injury problems - Bentley has not. If he is even 80% of the old Bentley, he'll p1ss the championship. COYB

where there is one there is more,on the positive side,,good move getting bentley back,,he wont be the old bentley thats obviouse,,but he will give us options we didnt have before, loving the clean sheets its so much better than conceding all the time,,Jack Walker is still a legend and always will be,,arte et labore,,1857,
Why won't he be the same Bentley? He's 28 and at his peak.
Just because he hasn't been in Spurs superb squad does not mean he is a poor player all of a sudden. He may well be another roque, but he had injury problems - Bentley has not. If he is even 80% of the old Bentley, he'll p1ss the championship. COYB

Serious lack of claret on here lately!!!
well what did he do tonight, ? its back to the drawing board , the team tonight was not up for the fight,,its that simple,,cup fever always finds you out wether your messi,or bentley,,oh and by the way,,dont get any fancy ideas about **** the championship eh,,,
