Tottenham star Justin Edeinbrugh is spot-on when he says that many of Tottneham’s current problems stem from the departure of Harry Redknapp.
The veteran English manager left the club after failing to qualify for The Champions League amidst claims that his head had been turned regarding the vacant England managers position at the time.
Edinburgh says that Tottenham have suffered since he left. He told talksport:
“Tottenham always seem to press the self destruct button,” he told Extra Time. “Why on earth did Tottenham get rid of Harry [Redknapp]?
“We had the best squad I’d seen at Tottenham for 20-odd years. Everyone was playing for him, we were producing some good results and we got into the Champions League. They started searching for things they didn’t need to.”
We couldn’t agree more. We were totally against the idea of appointing Andre Villas Boas as Tottenham manager in the first place. He took away Chelsea’s charisma and made Tottenham a more confused and clunky looking side. Had it not been for Gareth Bale he would have been found out long before he was.
Tim Sherwood has overseen some decent results since he took over but this Tottenham side still lacks identity.
Harry Redknapp may not look like the most sophisticated and forward thinking manager like a lot of the youngsters out there.
But he has a football vision and knows how he wants a game to be played. When he managed Tottenham they had great shape and played entertaining football. He kept it beautifully simple.
It is of course water under the bridge now but the most important thing is that the Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy learns from any mistakes moving forward. Getting the right manager is the most important aspect of any football club.
Tottenham fans would you prefer to stick or twist in terms of the boss this summer?
