Harry Redknapp threatens silence
It appears that Tottenham Hotspurs boss Harry Redknapp is getting ready to start a total press blackout following his side’s controversial loss against Manchester United over the weekend.
Redknapp described the weekend’s events as being “a farce”, which has led to the Football Association debating whether or not to take action against the Spurs manager, much to the annoyance of Redknapp.
Spurs lost 2-0 after Nani scored late on in the match. Heurelo Gomes was left bewildered after thinking he had lined up a free kick, which Nani subsequently slotted into the back of the net.
This led the disgruntled Tottenham boss to say: "The whole thing was a farce. It was handball. Nani put his hand on it and dragged it down. Mark Clattenburg is a top referee but he has had a nightmare with that."
The FA has not looked kindly on Redknapp's description of the situation and they are now deliberating whether or not to take further action against the 63-year-old.
The news has not been greeted well by Redknapp, who has since hit back at the media for highlighting his comments.
"If you want me to come out and talk rubbish and say, 'No, it was a good decision, I'm quite happy with it', then don't bother getting me to come out after a game.” stated Redknapp.
Alex Ferguson has since said that the officials of the match were not to blame for the events that transpired, saying: "You can look at the referee and look at the linesmen and blame them, but the goalkeeper should know better. He's an experienced goalkeeper. I thought he made a mess of it.”
Stan James, UniBet and Totesport currently offer 9/2 odds Manchester United will finish first in the Premier League.
