Harry Redknapp’s use of Niko Kranjcar last season was a little puzzling for most Spurs fans and his attitude towards the player was emphasised at the start of the year. After scoring winning goals against Bolton and Sunderland, Niko was despatched to the bench and continued his role as a bit part player.
While Harry would always say this was a player he liked to have around the squad, he was rarely used even when Steven Pienaar and/or Gareth Bale was injured.
Moving on to this coming season, while rumours of a move have continued, nothing has happened thus far and the player’s agent has now said that any move will be entirely down to Tottenham.
“At this moment I cannot comment on any market rumours, it is for Tottenham to decide whether the player leaves or not,” said Adrian Aliaj.
“I read a lot of news about him in newspapers, but his future is in the hands of the English club,” he added.
So if it’s all down to Tottenham, should Niko be kept and if so, should he play a bigger role next season? Would you rather see Steven Pienaar sold instead?
