‘Arry claims Arsene Wenger got his sloppy seconds
Spurs boss suffers wheel/deal fail…
Harry Redknapp, never one to miss an opportunity to mine some glory out of the most desperate of situations, has brushed off Spurs’ 3-0 humping at the Emirates on Saturday by revealing he knew about one of Arsenal’s best performers this season, Thomas Vermaelen, before Arsene Wenger did:
“I was recommended him as a left-back but we were strong in that position. People who recommended him didn’t speak of him as a central defender.”
‘Arry can’t have done too much research – Vermaelen filled in at centre-back for Ajax for over a third of last season, winning eight of the 12 games he played in the role. If the Spurs boss wants to get a more well-rounded view of Europe’s finest footballers, perhaps he should actually start playing Football Manager, rather than just pocketing the coin from shamelessly hawking it.
