How this well known opportunist, chronic excuse maker and user of the media has the effrontery to demand a new 3-4 year contract after the incredibly costly failure to qualify for the CL in the most dismal of circumstances (and lets not forget he was actively courting the English job too), well, it's beyond me.
Along with the majority of Spurs fans, I'd imagine, I'm hoping and preying that Levy's rumoured displeasure with HR (and they are meant to be holding 'show-down' contract issues this week), will lead to Redknapp being given the elbow. It does look to me like HR - no doubt with the encouragement of his new agent - Rooney's management team - has decided to start blabbing again in the press as some form of strategy.
3-4 year contract?!
Over to Mr Levy then...
I've always lliked the way he used the press, I can remember seeing one "off camera" moment related by another press man around Jan last year when he wanted Parker, it was said he spoke to a friend of his (i think he was his ghost writer on his autobiography) you should ask me about these players. That way, he's not "tapping them up".For someone who claims to be so unintelligent he's a smart chap who knows how the system works.
4 more years!!
