Although we know that Harry Redknapp was in the stands watching Bryan Ruiz play for FC Twente last night, it doesn’t seem that the manager was all that impressed with what he saw.
By all accounts, Harry had left before the Costa Rican’s late equaliser but son Jamie, speaking on Sky after the game claimed that his Dad had said Ruiz had ‘done OK’, but the generally impression was that he failed to make his mark on the Spurs boss.
Perhaps that’s why Harry has come out today and publicly stated that Spurs are in talks to sign Emmanuel Adebayor from Manchester City.
“The chairman is talking to Man City about the player but where they are at, I genuinely don’t know,” said Harry.
While it was believed that a loan deal was previously being thrashed out, there is a hint that a permanent deal may be discussed.
So it appears that we may get some confirmed news very shortly but in the meantime, is Harry right to dismiss Bryan Ruiz so quickly and turn his attentions firmly on Adebayor?
