White Hart Lane captain has not fallen out with board.
Tottenham Hotspur captain Michael Dawson has angrily denied he has fallen out with the club’s board over contract negotiations.
The 27-year-old was rumoured to have been only offered a ‘derisory’ pay rise despite breaking into the England and performing well in the Champions League.
Claims that he was the latest star to be heading to the White Hart Lane exit door are exaggerated according to the player, who has four years left on his contract.
“I have no idea where this story has come from – it certainly has not come from myself or any of my representatives,” Dawson said.
“I think I have always demonstrated that I am a proud player and captain of this club and nothing has changed in that respect.
“I have an excellent relationship with everyone at this club from the chairman, to the players to the supporters and I wouldn’t want false reporting such as this to impact on that.
“There has been absolutely no fallout with anyone whatsoever. I still have four years left on my current contract and no issues regarding it whatsoever.
“It is an honour to be captain of this football club and my sole focus is on getting ready for the new season with Spurs and, hopefully, England as well.”
