Paulinho has revealed that is unsettled at Tottenham and is uncomfortable with Tim Sherwood’s rotation policy.

The Brazilian, who has made 22 Premier League starts for Spurs this season, sat out Sunday’s 4-0 thrashing by Liverpool at Anfield with an eye infection.

I am not feeling well or comfortable. I want to be present, I want to play

The 25-year-old admits that he has been struggling to pick up the English language since arriving at White Hart Lane last summer and says that he is unhappy not to be featuring more regularly.

“I always want to play,” Paulinho told Globo Esporte.

“I understand the team rotation because that’s how it works here, but I am not feeling well or comfortable. I want to be present, I want to play.

“The language is the most complicated thing as I am lazy about studying. I am learning little by little, but I don’t understand everything.

“The football language is easier, that’s not a problem on the pitch.”

Paulinho joined Tottenham for £17m from Corinthians last summer.
