Spurs have had a very poor start to their season and Bentley, 1 £15million summer signing from Blackburn, admits he is shocked.
He said: “I know people are having a laugh at the fact we are bottom of the league at the moment. But it’s up to everyone at the club to stop the jokes.
“We have more than enough good players at Tottenham to get us out of this situation and I give my word that we will.”
He added: “We’re not happy with what has been happening.
“You cannot hide from the situation. But what we need are a team of leaders who take responsibility. We have to grow as people.”
