It was an extraordinary night for the rumour mills with regards to Harry Redknapp’s future at Spurs but was there any truth in the stories or was it merely outrageous gossip as has been suggested?
The rumours seemed to start appearing on the social networking platforms around late afternoon and it seemed at one point as if a definitive announcement may be imminent.
In time however, Harry appeared to deny the claims
“No, I haven’t resigned, and I have no idea why it is being suggested that I have resigned,” he said.
“This is an outrage; an absolute liberty for people to be putting around this kind of rumour on the internet. It is not true, there is not a chance I will resign. Why should I? I have a year left on my contract.”
There are suggestions however that Daniel Levy is furious that the club missed out on automatic qualification after surrendering a ten point lead in third place. Although Spurs did technically finish in the Champions League places, third spot was there for the taking and there would have been no need to even watch that agonising Champions League final.
So where is the truth? At the moment it’s unclear but it seems certain that it will be revealed very shortly.
