Tottenham striker Pavlyuchenko: I know everyone is writing me off

Tottenham striker Roman Pavlyuchenko says he's getting along better with manager Harry Redknapp.

Pavlyuchenko revealed his relationship with the boss was improving.

"Many people in England and in Russia have written that I was finished as a footballer, so I wanted to prove them wrong more than ever," Pavlyuchenko told Sport Express after taking his opportunity against Bolton.

"All week I had worked hard in training - so even Redknapp praised me, which has not happened in quite a while.

"I perfectly understand that one good match doesn't solve anything. Redknapp has already said that he'll play me against Bolton. I'll try not to play at least as well."
