The Mirror run with an interesting piece this morning. Maybe it’s hogwash, after all Goal.com decided to turn the ‘gone by the weekend’ ITK fever on message boards into ‘crunch talks on Friday’.
My guess is that it isn’t hogwash as such, rather the Arry camp having a pretty futile go at trying to boost the old cove’s stock. Their original plan to play the, ‘Chelsea are interested card’ became increasingly unbelievable the more obvious it became in the press that Abramovich only had eyes for Guardiola.
It comes as a Middle East consortium has put together a financial package to try and tempt Redknapp to a job in Qatar.
Redknapp was sounded out last year by a Middle East club, and the Mirror understands there is fresh interest because they feel they may now be able to lure him away.
The 65-year-old fears there is an element at White Hart Lane who may want a change of manager, despite last season’s impressive campaign.
The silence from Redschnapps since the close of the season has been chilling. talkSPORT have resorted to talking calls from members of the public. At the very least this shows Levy & Co. that this plonker’s mind is always on anything other than Tottenham.
Io fei gibetto de le mei case.
