Harry Redknapp Says “No Chance” Spurs Will Sign Striker
Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has all but ruled out a move for under-fire Manchester City star Carlos Tevez.
Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has all but ruled out a move for under-fire Manchester City star Carlos Tevez, if the striker becomes available.
Tevez’s career at the Etihad stadium is all but over after the striker, apparently, refused to make a substitute appearance during the club’s 2-0 defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich.
The Argentine forward claims he takes no responsibilty for his actions and denies refusing to take to the field on Tuesday night. And Redknapp has admitted he is not interested in bringing Tevez to White Hart Lane due to his high wage demands, while condemning the behaviour of the former Manchester United front-man.
“We couldn’t afford him, no chance,” Redknapp said.
“He is a great player, but I can’t condone what happened. It was unbelievable.”
“I felt sorry for Roberto Mancini to be put in that situation. It wasn’t fair. It wasn’t right,” said Redknapp.
“It wasn’t right for Man City and was not right for football. I can’t believe it. It shouldn’t happen and can’t happen.
“When you look at that, you wonder what Joe Mercer and Malcolm Allison would have thought of it and all the great Man City people. The great players like Summerbee, Bell, Lee.
“To see a player do that, refuse to come on and play in a Champions League game is beyond belief.”
And when Redknapp was asked what he would do in that situation, the Spurs manager replied:
“I don’t know what you can do now, he holds all the aces.
“He gets his wages every week and eventually, if you want to give him away, someone will give him a fortune because it’s cheap or there is no doubting he is a great player.
“It’s a problem that only Man City can deal with now.”
