This edition of Wise Words Wednesday features former Blackburn and Tottenham winger, David Bentley. The player poised as the next David Beckham during his Blackburn days, lost his way during his time with Tottenham. This interview explains why he fell out of love in the game and eventually retired. Maybe the fact that Premier League teams were not interested in the player expedited the process , but it is plausible that being in the game as long as he has, a step back was needed to figure out whether this is the life for him. It seems like David is doing well, he is a co-owner of a restaurant in Spain and has invested in several beach clubs. Even though he keeps up with the game closely now, it does not seem like a comeback is in the cards.
