AFC Bournemouth’s Harry Redknapp and Shaun Teale’s wife: what really happened?

by | 10th, October 2013


HARY Redknapp continues to make friends with his latest book. Via the Daily Mail, he makes a claim that might well interest the police:


His wife tried to run me over

Attempted murder?

When I left Bournemouth and went to West Ham as assistant manager in 1992, I’d had enough of being the bad guy. When you are the manager, you put up that team-sheet and, straight away, half the club hates you. Their wives hate you, too.

At Bournemouth, Shaun Teale’s missus nearly ran me over after a row over about one hundred quid. She marched down to the training ground over some minor contractual issue, gave me a mouthful, I told her to p**s off, and the next thing I knew she was reversing out of the car park so fast she nearly took me with her.

So. Redknapp stops well short of saying she tried to run him over. The Mail’s headline is overly spiced. But the story is out there, and it travels. One tweeter takes an interest:

@ShaunTeale‘s wife tried to run Harry Redknapp over according to his book!

Shaun Teale responds:

Such are the facts…
