Harry Redknapp says he has no grudge against nasty Spurs and those untrustworthy, clueless FA fools

COMPARE and contrast Harry Redknapp with these two extracts from his new book:

“Daniel Levy) was the first person to ring me up to wish me luck when I took over at QPR, and even on the night I left Tottenham, the car phone rang and it was Daniel. “Harry, let’s keep in touch,” he said. “I hope we can still be friends.” I thought, He’s got some front. He’s just sacked me and now he wants to be mates. But we have stayed in touch. I’m not one for grudges.”

Harry and Alex Ferguson both. But here’s what Harry also says in his book:

“I wouldn’t trust the FA to show me a good manager if their lives depended on it. How would they know? What clubs have they ever run? Who do they speak to who really knows the game? This isn’t about them giving the England job to me or Roy Hodgson, but English football being run by people who really haven’t got a clue. And they get to pick the England manager!

“Everyone said I was the people’s choice, the only choice. All the senior players…[continues for a long time]…”

PS: he also said on February 10, 2012:

“They’ll make whatever decision they want to make and I’m sure it will be the right one.”

But that was before they didn’t pick him…
