But speaking to the club'sofficialwebsitethree days ago,he insisted that he always gives his best for the team.

He wasn't at his sharpest when Spurs played West Brom on Saturday. The team scraped a 1-1 draw through Dele Alli's late leveller, but the former Roma man was hauled off midway through the second half.
