Bentley: Capello was right to leave me out

David Bentley admits Fabio Capello "probably made the right decision'' in dropping him from the England squad for the recent World Cup qualifiers.

The Tottenham winger has endured a difficult few months after Spurs' terrible start to the season following his high-profile transfer from Blackburn.

Bentley had looked set to inherit David Beckham's place on the right of England's midfield only for Theo Walcott to grasp his chance in September's qualifiers and overtake him in the pecking order.

But Bentley - who insists he is still "loving'' life at White Hart Lane despite the current problems - insists he can understand why he was not selected in the England squad for the matches against Kazakhstan and Belarus this month.

Speaking on BBC1's Inside Sport, Bentley revealed Capello has not contacted him since he was dropped.

He said: No, he hasn't. But you know, I've been out of a couple of games, I've not played as well as I should have, the team (Tottenham) is not doing well. He's got to think of England and he's probably made the right decision.''

Bentley insists he bears no animosity towards Walcott and was not watching the recent internationals hoping the young Arsenal winger performed badly.

"No, I'd never wish that upon anyone,'' he said. "It's never their fault that you're not playing. It's between you and the manager; it's not the player's fault.

"I was happy for him (when he scored a hat-trick in Croatia), it was good. It was good for the team.''

As for club matters, Bentley - who pressed hard for the transfer from Blackburn - said: "I made the move to Tottenham and it was such a high - such a buzz - and then you come slap back down to Earth with a bang.

"We didn't want to start like this but maybe we had to start like this - for the long term, for things to work out - and I believe in that,'' he added.

And the 24-year-old has no regrets about making the move to Spurs.

"No, I'm totally committed,'' he said. "I wanted to come to Tottenham, I want to play and I want to put things right. I'm up for the challenge and it is a good club to be with.

"I'm loving it to be honest, even though we are down there. It's horrible but I want to get there with Tottenham and I want to do things with Tottenham.

"I'd rather be doing it there than just being another number at another club. Hopefully I can have a positive effect.''
