After a lot of mounting speculation it appears as if Spurs manager Harry Redknapp will officially leave his post as manager of the club on Thursday. Redknapp was apparently in disagreement with the club over a new contract; Harry wanted a long-term deal but it looks as if the side aren’t willing to match his demands.
I find it strange that the Tottenham board aren’t snapping Harry’s hand off, with him seemingly willing to commit the rest of his career to managing the North London side. However, whatever the case may be, relations between chairman Daniel Levy and Redknapp appear to be strained beyond reconciliation.
It remains to be seen whether this will be confirmed on Thursday or not, but my feeling is that there must be something adrift at White Hart Lane and it wouldn’t shock me to see him leave. Spurs are without Champions League football next term (no fault of Harry’s, just a bit unlucky that Chelsea pipped the final position by winning the trophy).
If Redknapp does move on, theres sure to be a host of top European clubs monitoring his situation. He’s brought a lot of excitement to the club, signing some top class players in the process, and has been with the club for nearly 4 years now. There are rumours that Spurs may look to fill his vacancy with David Moyes of Everton.
