Harry Redknapp gives QPR owners a spanking with Remy
THE world according to Harry Redknapp, QPR manager. The Evening Standard reported today:
Loic Remy was finalising an £8million transfer to Queens Park Rangers today but the striker will be sold in the summer if the club are relegated. It is understood that his £80,000‑a-week deal includes a release clause which will be triggered if Rangers, who are bottom of the Premier League, go down in May.
The Mail had more news on those wages:
It is understood Rangers offered double Newcastle’s wages to put together an £80,000-a-week package for the striker…
Or as Harry Redknapp said way, way, way back in December 2012:
“I don’t want to spend the owners’ money really. I’ve got to be honest with you. I don’t want to see the owners have their pants taken down like they have in the past. A lot of agents have made an awful lot of money out of them. I fined a player (Jose Bosingwa) last week and he was earning more than anybody at Tottenham, so that tells you everything. We’ve got a stadium that holds 18,000 people and shouldn’t be paying big wages. Newcastle’s ground holds 55,000 and I bet you most of their players won’t be earning what our players are. So that is a problem.”
Such are the facts…
