Nintendo hawker Harry Redknapp bemoans video games as he heads to Russia
Harry is upset over Government plans to add VAT to the cost of paying to play football on artificial pitches. He says:
“We’re always being told how hard it is to get kids to switch off their computer games and play in the fresh air – yet this makes it a bit harder to do that.”
As Harry and his Redknappios flog Nintendo computer games to the slack-jawed masses (see his Wii adverts), the man himself is being linked to managing Russia. His spokesperson, one Phil Smith, tells the Sun:
“Would Harry have a problem going to Russia? No. He’s ready to go and live in any country.”
That would Harry Redknapp who in 2008 turned down a big money move from Portsmouth to Newcastle United because it meant moving up North from Dorset?
