Why It All Went Pear-Shaped For Harry 'The Bung'

Poor Harry 'The Bung' feels he would have been sacked even if Tottenham had qualified for the Champions League.

Harry Redknapp: "We missed out on third place by one point in the end, but that is how it goes.

"I think the same outcome would have happened, the chairman would have gone down the same road.

"I had four great years at Spurs. All you can do is leave the club in a better state than you found it and I did that, for sure.

"I abide by their decision and don't hold grudges. That is life, we all move on.

"I don't think I am coming towards the end of my career - Sir Alex Ferguson is in his seventies and he is not coming to the end of his, he is still the best manager in the world.

"I am still fit as a fiddle. I feel great. I don't feel any different. I love football. That is what keeps me going really.

"I love going into work with the players every day and that is what I will miss. I am not one for sitting at home.

"It is always disappointing, but that is football.

"I leave behind some fantastic players. The only disappointment I have is that I think it was a team which could have gone on and eventually won the Premier League in the next year or two.

"I just wish I could have been able to see that through and be part of that because they have some fantastic players there.

"It was nothing to do with contracts or me asking for anything at all. I had a year left and that was fine.

"It was just a case that the club decided they wanted a change and that is their decision because they own the club."
