Redknapp: Arsene Wenger has become a nutter


Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp has described his Arsenal counterpart Arsene Wenger as a 'nutter', but says that he still gets on well with the Frenchman.

Redknapp was speaking of the changes in Wenger's demeanour on the touchlines, with the Gunners manager having long since cast off his image as a quiet, studious coach.

"When Arsene first came to England I remember reading articles and they said that he was like a professor watching the game," Redknapp said.

"All the other nutters were jumping up and down shouting and screaming, hollering and hooting – and this man is not like those idiots.

"He just sits there and is studying every move that goes on on the pitch like chess. They didn't lose a game all season.

"Now he has joined the nutters, you know. In fact, he is one of the key nutters. That is the tension that you are under. It has affected him now.

"He is no longer sitting there now. He is up there arguing with everybody and gets into it all. I think he has changed. He was the quietest man of the lot at one point.

"I don't have any problems with him at all, he's always been good. Sometimes I go into his office at Arsenal."
