Tom Carroll is willing to leave if it's the best thing for him, so let's freak out

ZOMG ONOES

On Tuesday, Tom Carroll spoke to the Fulham Chronicle about his future. He mentioned both Tottenham Hotspur and Queens Park Rangers, noting that he'd prefer to make it at his parent club if at all possible.

Here's what Carroll had to say to the paper.

"I want to make it at Tottenham, that's my main aim. I've been there since I was eight so it's obviously a club close to my heart. I'm contracted at Spurs and it's down for the two clubs to talk. QPR's a great club and I've enjoyed my time here, so we'll see what happens."

They went with this headline.

Carroll confident over Spurs future

Totally reasonable headline, right? Well, every other outlet is picking up the quotes and running something along the lines of "Carroll wants QPR stay" or "Carroll sees his future away from Spurs". So if you've seen that floating around, don't freak out, because that's not what Carroll said.

Of course, it's entirely possible that we could hire a new coach that doesn't rate Carroll and thinks he has no future as a first-choice player. That would be extremely sad, but we can cross that bridge when we come to it. For now, believe that Carroll will return, will get a chance to fight for his place and will be happy about that.
