“I don’t understand why [Harry] Redknapp keeps me on the bench. He says nothing about it. I don’t want to be among the subs after a successful game, where I scored a goal.

“Frankly, I’m tired of waiting for another chance.

“I had a groin injury but I was fully prepared for the last two games against Blackburn and Bolton. I didn’t even get a chance in the FA Cup game at Fulham when we were 4-0 down.

“At the same time Redknapp says in interviews he needs me and is not going to sell me. My agent had a meeting with chairman Daniel Levy but it won’t change anything.”

Tottenham striker Roman Pavlyuchenko has voiced his frustrations on his limited playing time by criticising his manager, Harry Redknapp.

Speaking to Russian newspaper Sport Express, the 29-year-old has told how the relationship has deteriorated.

But after these comments Pavlyuchenko may not play for Tottenham again if Redknapp has finally lost patience with the striker.

Redknapp desparately tried to sign a new striker in the last transfer window but had bids for Andy Carroll, Fernando Llorente and Sergio Aguero turned down.

Pavlyuchenko was signed for Tottenham in 2008 by Juande Ramos from Spartak Moscow for £14 million, but has seen his appearnaces restricted to just 61 games – scoring 15 goals.

The Russian has refused all offers of a new deal, and with only 18 months remaining on his current contract he looks likely to be heading for the exit in the Summer.
