Our over-rated and overpaid right winger David Bentley was attacked in a restaurant whilst sitting down for a meal with fiancée Kimberly Mills. One man approached Bentley, started talking crap, then took a swing at him hitting him hard in the face; no wonder David felt 'badly shaken' after, maybe he was jealous this bloke could actually hit the target he was aiming for.
Bentleys agent Robert Segal said:"David is pretty shaken. He was in the restaurant with his best friend and their respective partners. A guy walked over and started talking gibberish to him, then he just took a swing and punched him. David's fiancée, who is seven months pregnant, had just been to the loo and saw the whole thing. Obviously, she was very upset about it."
"David's mate jumped up and ran after the man and he got punched as well. It was obviously premeditated because the other people at the table got up and ran out of the restaurant. They had taxis waiting outside.
"The police were called and we are just waiting to see what we can do. If we are advised to, then we will definitely press charges."
Now, we all know Bentley didn't have the greatest of seasons last year but most of us managed to focus our usual Spurs anger and disappointment into supporting the overpaid players that make up our first team. Maybe this guy just couldn't accept that David was getting paid more than him and felt he could do a better job.
I guess this will be Davids excuse for not being included in the first team for the start of the season, in fact, I think he could be missing for the whole year.
