Sky Sports are reporting that Tottenham Hotspur and Harry Redknapp have parted company.
Rumours have been circulating in the last 24hrs that Daniel Levy had no intention of extending Harry Redknapp’s contract at the club. It appears after today’s showdown talks that a parting of the ways was necessary, in the eyes of the Tottenham chairman, so the club could move forward.
Football is all about fine margins and missing out on the Champions League, having been in pole position for most of the season to get a top three finish, has arguably been the deciding factor behind the decision. It was surely no coincidence that Tottenham’s downturn last season had much to do with the speculation linking Harry Redknapp with the England job. Harry claims it didn’t change anything, but there are many Spurs fans out there who will undoubtedly beg to differ.
It must be stressed that at the point of writing this article that nothing has been officially confirmed, but with all of Fleet Street are tweeting the news and it being all over Sky Sports at present, the chances of it being unfounded remain unlikely.
Paddy Power has stopped taking bets on David Moyes to be the new Tottenham manager, but is he the type of man that Spurs fans want leading the club forward?
