Nelsen: No regrets over Spurs exit

Miguel Delaney

As QPR's Ryan Nelsen gets ready to face Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, the central defender insists he has no regrets about leaving White Hart Lane in the summer.

Despite the opportunity to be part of Andre Villas-Boas's new era at the club, Nelsen took the decision to re-unite with his old Blackburn Rovers boss, Mark Hughes, at Loftus Road.

"I could've probably stayed at Tottenham. Mark came in pretty early on and Tottenham were changing managers," he said. "They pretty much said they would like me to stay but they didn't have a manager at the time. I couldn't wait for that so when Mark came in it was a no-brainer.

"I loved my time at Spurs. It's a classy club from the chairman to the kitman. I enjoyed every minute of it and it was a great experience.

"But I've got no regrets the way things turned out. I couldn't be happier at QPR. I'm looking forward to going back and hopefully getting a good result against them.

"You always want them to do well apart from when you play them, but we want to win every game, and Tottenham will be no different."
