Michael Dawson: Life's looking good again at White Hart Lane

At one stage during the first part of 2012/13, the central defender appeared to be on his way to Queens Park Rangers before former Spurs boss Harry Redknapp replaced Mark Hughes as manager.

But, after being out of favour during the early months of Andre Villas-Boas's reign, Dawson is now first choice under the Portuguese manager and he accepts 'it is all part of the game'.

He told Sky Sports News: "It's football. I've had so many ups, so many downs, that's what football can bring.

"It's a sport that everyone loves. A year ago I wasn't in the team. This time last year I'd hardly played two games.

"But I kept my head down and worked hard. Belief - that's what you've got to have inside.

"Everyone has knock-backs and it's how you bounce back and thankfully, once November came I got in the team and never looked back."

As for being at Spurs, he said: "What a football club. I love being here, I love the lads, the fans, everything.

"It's a great football club and one that's on the up and striving for big things."
