Yesterday, Harry Redknapp revealed that the Tottenham board needed some convincing before agreeing to the Scott Parker deal. In his comments, Harry said that he persuaded the club of what Parker could bring to the club this season and during the next campaign.
“There was a feeling that bringing in Scott, 31 years of age and with no sell-on value, could be a problem. I argued that it was what he could give us this year and next that could make the difference. Daniel backed me on that,” Harry said.
However, Parker himself has asserted that he has plenty of football left in him and that he can stay at the top for the whole of his four year deal.
Speaking in the Daily Express, Parker said: “I’ve signed for four years here and would like to think this is my last club. You’re thinking ’34?’ He won’t be able to run, but I honestly believe that players these days can go on for so much longer.”
Scott Parker faces one of his former clubs on Sunday and once again will have a pivotal role to play if Spurs are going to come away with a positive result.
